#YES SUCCESS! February Half Term 2022
We were grateful for funding from City of Wolverhampton Council to run Holiday Activity over February Half Term week, 2022.
We delivered a wide range of creative activities for young people ages 10-16, SEND and Deaf friendly.
The young people created some fantastic pieces of art including:
Alongside the creative activities they also learnt some British Sign Language
Here's what they told us:
“I enjoyed them because I liked making the cool monsters”

A busy start to 2022!
It's probably too late to say 'Happy New Year' - but we'll say it anyway!
Please see our latest Newsletter below and you can download the PDF from the link above - this has live URL links to videos. The start of 2022 has been unusually busy at RAW HQ - we've been involved in several high profile projects including British Art Show 9 in Wolverhampton.
Alex Vann from RAW led an online music and singing workshop as part of the 'Creativity After C19' ACE funded project which features several creative arts practitioners discussing ways to tackle long covid type symptoms. He sang 4 of his own songs, talked about the importance of breathing and even managed to compose a new song using lyrics submitted by attendees in the chat window! The session was recorded and you can watch the video on YouTube.
Please do get in touch with any queries / feedback on any of the articles or if you think we can work with your organisation on some uplifting and engaging creative projects.
