Project Overview

We are thrilled to be working in partnership with MakoDigital Arts CIC this Easter holidays to deliver FREE creative activities to young people from St Helens and Halton. These activities are part of the Holiday Activity Fund. This funding has enabled us to deliver a blended approach to activities with both online and face to face sessions. As well as delivering creative sessions we will also be working with partner organisations to provide food for the young people who take part in the face to face sessions.

The project will be split into four sections:

    The creative sessions will include; Video Game Design, Robotics, Drone Flying, Stop-Motion Animation, Digital Music Making and Many More!!!
