We are passionate about supporting and developing freelance artists and creative professionals, and are now able to co-produce and facilitate some innovative and truly amazing visions from our Soul Warrior brothers and sisters so that we can support local freelance professionals whilst supporting our communities.
We have our fantastic new 'Vibe Tribe' project funded by the Arts Council of Wales to make sure that we keep engagement free at point of delivery for you each week until the end of March 2024.
Sessions are currently running on a Wednesday from 12-4pm at Place for You (The old Corus Club), Rowley's Drive, Shotton, and Thursday 12-4pm at Rivertown Church, Shotton High Street. You can see from the example posters below that we have all kinds on offer each week from music, jamming, song-writing and singing to comedy, dance and exploring movement for wellbeing. There really is something for everyone, and everybody is welcome.

Youth Tribe Project
We also have our wonderful Youth Tribe, with some limited spaces currently available (age 11-15, and 16-24 for peer mentors) if you would like to join our focus group to work on issues facing young people, whilst having fun, making new friends and learning some new creative skills. (You can see the impact report from our Youth Tribe Pilot project below).
We do loads of cool things from our 'Alternative prom' (see below!), to our 'Wicked Issues' youth led resource (see below). We have activities from music/jamming, songwriting, pool & chess, footy, crafting, karaoke jams and exploring learning new skills of all kinds 😁
We have a lovely programme linking in with our nature partners throughout the year in partnership with Mind Our Future and funded by The National Lottery and BCUHB. Take a look at our programme of events and get in touch with Jessica@artandsoultribe.co.uk for more details.
