Free creative sessions in Stirchley

Image reads: Abandoned Ideas. Exploring access and inclusion in community spaces. Wednesday 3rd and Friday 5th August, 6-8pm; Saturday 6th August 1-3pm. Free.

A Stirchley resident is looking for people to attend one (or more) of their August sessions exploring creativity – no artistic talent required at all.

Abandoned Ideas is a series of workshops run by local artist Heidi Murphy to ignite creativity, and discuss what play means as an adult. Over the two hour session, participants will be given access to the artists’ personal stash of abandoned project supplies and a series of prompts.

No artistic talent is required, all you need to bring is yourself. Sessions are free and take place in Artefact on Stirchley High Street on

  • Wednesday 3rd August – 6pm-8pm
  • Friday 5th August 6pm-8pm
  • Saturday 7th August 1pm-3pm (extra materials suited for small children will be available at this session)

If you’re interested in attending, please sign up on the Eventbrite for Abandoned Ideas here.

Beyond Relaxed is a research project supported by Arts Council England, exploring how access and inclusion affects us all. It aims to answer the question: what is an inclusive space? Are people listened to?
