Rise & View Krew

We are really pleased that Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage has been awarded funding to set up a new group and to deliver holiday club activities with young residents of the Saunders Park area of Brighton.

The group will be call the Rise & View Krew after the names of the local streets – Saunders Park View and Saunders Park Rise and will be free and open to accompanied children ages 5-11.

See our new Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/RiseandViewKrew/

The sessions will take place during the Easter holidays and summer holidays in April and August 2019. We aim for there to be ten three hour sessions offering a variety of creative activities along with a health snack.

Activities will include the following:

  • Calico print making and flags
  • Faux stained glass
  • Clay makes
  • Mosaic creation

We will encourage young participants to try new pursuits and acquire new skills, whilst meeting friends and accessing dedicated facilitation from staff and freelancers at Strike a Light to support this.

There are currently no other groups for children in Saunders Park, and we would like to encourage a group to start and grow (to publicise activities and also to create more in-kind support with parental help).

We aim to show that even with limited time and funds; it is still achievable to set up a group offering educational, nurturing, sustainable and enjoyable activities whilst factoring in healthy eating, cooperative play, sharing, and healthy living. This is in addition to supporting families and especially isolated mums.

We have in-kind support from Trust for Developing Communities- Hollingdean and Saunders Park who are committed to providing a free space to develop activities for children and families in the area at the United Reform Church on the corner of Lewes Road and Saunders Park Rise, as the only venue in the area to deliver sessions.

This group development we believe encourages more families to join in community activities. We will do this through the development of inclusive and participatory activities and events for children.

This will include a programme of sessions which incorporate learning age appropriate new skills such as print making, stained glass, clay sessions. These sessions will incorporate numeracy and literacy to support learning.

We will generate participation through promoting the group’s activities through posters publicising our sessions, a Rise & View Krew Facebook Group, sharing the information about the group’s activities on local area Facebook groups including the Saunders Park Community Noticeboard, and Trust for Developing Communities Hollingdean and Saunders 
Park, as well as a Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage project page on our website.

We will also encourage word of mouth promotion, and our partner TDC has pledged to print leaflets to support promotion of this to residents through letter boxes.

Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage is delivering free families workshops in October and November 2018 in venues across Brighton and Hove to look at the theme of The Unremembered – commemorating the Labour Corps service personnel in World War I.

With support from creative facilitators, we’ll be creating articulated puppets on templates designed, created and compiled by children.
We will be using fabric scraps, wrapping paper and wall paper to create overlaid uniforms for these puppets and to bring them to life.

The puppet theme for this project is two-fold – An engaging and accessible way to teach young people and community groups who are unaware of this lost period of history about the Labour Corps, and also puppets as a symbol for the role of the Labour Corps in terms of having no control over their work or location, that they were moved around like mules and treated as such.

This will help to remember some of the soldiers who served with the Labour Corps and their link with Sussex and draw this forgotten history into the light.
