C.I.A. Company of Indoor Artists
supporting children's creativity during lockdown

Introducing Agent Dali (not his real name), who's on a Recruitment Drive for the C.I.A. (Company of Indoor Artists).

We're proud to be working in partnership with Merchants' Academy in Withywood to support children aged 8-12 who are in receipt of free school meals to enjoy being creative at home.

Kindly funded by Quartet Community Foundation, the C.I.A. project currently runs until July. We have designed a range of creative activities including visual art, music, photography and creative writing which children can complete at home. We deliver boxes of creative resources to Merchants' Academy every fortnight, which families collect and complete at home. Find out more HERE.

We're very proud to announce that we are one of the six industry partners selected by Bristol + Bath R&D to run a research project on the theme of Expanded Performance.

We will be working closely with Merchants Academy in Withywood along witho other youth organisations in Bristol to explore whether the use of technology in performing arts opportunities means young people from less privileged backgrounds are more likely to engage.

We hope our research will help arts organisations to create performing arts offers in the future that appeal to young people from all backgrounds.

More information about the Expanded Performance project here.

Patch of Blue
a new song made for Pound Arts Blue Sky and Beyond Festival, June 2020

Our contribution to Pound Arts Centre "Blue Sky and Beyond Festival".  

"Patch of Blue" was written & recorded by our Artistic Director Gill. It's about the sky immediately above her garden in south Bristol.

You can see what else The Pound has in store for this festival here.
