Adding value to the neighbourhood
UrbanArts links the needs of those who create/make art, those who engage the artist as an essential element of their own development, and those who support UrbanArts because it adds value (sense of identity, lifestyle, prosperity) to the neighbourhood.
My City My Six
'My City My Six' saw the delivery of 24 storytelling workshops in the form of poetry, spoken word, comedy and digital story-telling led by UrbanArts. Residents were invited to explore their ideas & share something essential about themselves through 6-word stories.
