Emerge Cannock Chase
Young people in Cannock are taking part in the Emerge Festival Project at Cannock Library and The Museum of Cannock Chase where content for the festival is developed with young people aged from age 11 upwards.
During weekly workshops, artists work with young people to explore different art forms & develop ideas for the festival. Young people are also offered the opportunity to take part in the Arts Award programme.
Workshops begin again on the 2 October 2018 to start planning for the next festival in April 2019.
If you are a young person wanting to take part, contact Kerry at Cannock Library
