Our Vision

Upskilling our community through art & music

From singing to engineering, we offer volunteers in Dorset the opportunity to get involved on real art projects and have a learning experience like no other.

We want to…

Inspire

Our volunteers work side-by-side with professionals in the industry & see exactly how it’s done.

Teach

We train & mentor our volunteers, teaching them how to use professional tools & developing necessary skills for their future.

Build Confidence

Our volunteers are encouraged to take responsibility for specific parts of the project & learn that they have the potential to make their dreams a reality.

A practical education to realising dreams

Projects our volunteers have created

The Light, Salisbury

A stunning art installation suspended in Salisbury Cathedral.

The project aimed at bringing Salisbury’s community together following the Skripal poisonings and was dubbed a ‘Beacon of hope’ by Sky News.

Songs Of The Light, Salisbury

A spectacular multimedia concert, with live music, film & light display.

The performance brought together over 150 singers to perform an emotional journey from darkness to light. Interspersed with the songs were real stories from the public making it as inclusive as possible.

Lumin Essence, Giant Advent Wreath

The artistic installation, titled Lumin-Essence is a giant advent wreath (measuring 4 metres in diameter) evoking memories of the fallen during the world wars.

The wreath hung in St Peter’s Parkstone Church for 12 weeks.

“We Have Fallen”, Song & Music Video

Aspiring musician Alexandra Wehlau was given the opportunity to feature on this track. She was given 1-1 mentoring from Jon Nicholas.

Our volunteers produced the music video, working with professional Film Maker Jordi Roberts

The Lowly Candle Flame, Song & Music Video

Written to accompany Lumin Essence, the remembrance day song featured the voices of our local choir.

Our volunteers worked with professional Film maker Jordi Roberts to produce the music video.

The Light, Romsey

The 4m globe designed & built by our volunteers travelled to Romsey Abbey. It became the focal point of a larger community project highlighting issues surrounding mental health.
