PUPILS, teachers and VIP guests are being invited to The Mighty Creatives summer sharing event on Wednesday, June 8, at Derbyshire County Cricket Club.

The East Midlands children’s charity has organised the ‘Adventures in Creativity’ to help celebrate and share the creative talents of pupils across the county who have taken part in a Creative Partnerships project over the last year.

Richard Clark, chief executive of The Mighty Creatives, said, “Our summer events celebrate the vibrant impact creativity makes on the lives of children young people in the East Midlands. Sharing work from the world-leading Creative Partnerships programme, schools will see how creativity has helped children and young people love learning in schools, children’s centres and children’s homes, raising levels of attendance, achievement and ambition.

“As Creative Partnerships draws to a close, these creative lessons provide a valuable route map to promoting a new generation of creative children and young people, ready to take on the world.”

The event will be opened by Hasmita Chavda, an inspirational young person who is also a TMC board member.

Following this there will be a choice between workshops led by young people showcasing their creative projects and open space discussions about sustaining creativity. Children and young people will also create an installation from recycled materials to reflect and celebrate their achievements and to imagine a ‘world of endless possibilities’.
