Based in Mossley in Tameside, Cabasa Carnival Arts offered the opportunity to develop the artistic and performance skills of local young people, whilst extending their understanding of the impact of the creative arts on cultures around the world in a week-long series of workshops.
The main aim of the project was to share the ethos that community can create something unique through the medium of carnival arts. Cabasa worked with over 98 young people and delivered workshops in drumming, dance, song, and costume making led by national and international performers/artists. The project culminated in a performance showcasing the work created over the 6-day period.
This project was in collaboration with Exodus, West African Development, Community Arts Northwest , Mossley Community Centre, Tameside Council, New Charter Housing, Global Grooves, Bangdrum, Arts Council England and AGMA.
