Hatch: An Early Years Incubator Project 14 - 15 May 2015

Over the course of a week, we are working with three artists to develop some exciting new ideas for events for children aged 2-4. Be part of this process and take a sneak peek!

On the morning of Thursday 14th and Friday 15th May, we have practice sessions from each of the artists involved in Hatch - covering a range of genres including music, visual arts and aerial performance! By participating in the sessions, you will be supporting the artists and The Ark and helping us create and evaluate these new ideas. They will also be a lot of fun!
