Banbury Gig-Arts - Outreach visit to the Frank Wise School

Gig-Arts had a fantastic February afternoon event at the Frank Wise School in Banbury! Student participants from our launch event, which was held at the Banbury Mill Arts Centre in January, joined us again for another exciting work experience opportunity. Everyone registered for the event and then one-to-one discussions took place to explore ' how creative talents can be applied in the workplace.' There was then a formal presentation of the Gig-Arts Banbury Horse Head Sculpture which had been collaboratively made by the student participants. Dean Cooke, Head of the Frank Wise School Sixth Form Centre, received the sculpture from Abbie Cooke, Founder of Gig-Arts. The event concluded with everyone at the sixth form centre enjoying an opportunity to watch the Banbury Gig-Arts video - and to take part in a live music and dance finale! Our special thanks go to our funders, the European Social Fund, Futures and the Skills Funding Agency.
