Delivering community arts and cooking events in Leicester
Soft Touch Arts use creative projects to engage with and improve the life chances of disadvantaged young people in Leicester. Their projects unlock creativity and support the development of personal, social and employ-ability skills.
They received funding of £16,462 from Postcode Community Trust to purchase and kit out a ‘street machine’ van in Beaumont Leys estate. This now enables the group to stage creative projects for disadvantaged young people in Leicester for a further 5 years in multiple, flexible locations.
Thanks to the players of People's Postcode Lottery Soft Touch Arts are delivering community arts and cooking events to over 350 young people in Beaumont Leys!
