WOMAD here we come! (please don't rain)

Can't believe it is this time of year again and we are off to WOMAD festival tomorrow!!!
Looking forward to sharing time with the SOLA team, well those who can make it, and enjoying the vibes.
We'll be running children's art workshops with a cultural twist as usual- flying carpets from Eritrea and Venezuela and kites- all using recycled plastic bags.
We'll show you the result after the weekend...

Another enhancement to our work- Art Therapy

SOLA's Lead Artist, Adele Spiers, has been training as an Art Therapist (also known as Art Psychotherapist) for the past 3 years. Having undertaken an Art therapy placement at SOLA since March this year, we are pleased to tell you that as of today Adele is a qualified Art Therapist. Well done!!!

This is fantastic for Adele and for SOLA.

We are now able to offer a full range of creative activity including community arts, creative industries development support, arts training, diversity arts and an enhancement to our provision being Art Therapy.

Welcome to our new team members!

SOLA has 3 new volunteers who we would like to introduce to you...

As usual our volunteers come form a great variety of backgrounds. Our new volunteers, well actually they've been with us for a while but it's time to introduce you, come from Syria, Venezuela and Spain. We are lucky!
Welcome guys and enjoying working with you :-)
