IMPs Holiday Clubs go digital with York Mediale!

We’re really excited to announce that we’re working with York Mediale, York’s new international festival of media arts, for this summer’s IMPs holiday clubs.

Throughout August we’re running a series of three workshops exploring digital arts, including dance, music and film. The sessions will give children and young people the chance to explore new creative technology and create their own digital artworks.

As always, the holiday clubs are open to disabled and non-disabled children and young people aged 5 – 25.  Morning sessions are aimed at younger children aged 5-10 and the afternoon sessions are aimed at young people aged 11 – 25.  (Please note that age ranges for the sessions are just a guide. Siblings of other ages are welcome.)

You’re welcome to come along to one, two or all three sessions!
