Creating and inspiring art 

Erewash residents have the chance to join the Get Creative campaign when award winning Erewash Museum hosts an arts event as part of the nationwide festival on Saturday 24 March.
The drop-in session between 11am and 3pm will give people of all ages the chance to use words and images inspired by their favourite local buildings and places to create a recycled mobile.
Artist Jackie Ward, of Treehuggery, together with Erewash Borough Council’s Arts Development Team, will be at the museum throughout the day giving help and advice as people get creative and make their own masterpiece to take home.
The Get Creative campaign is run nationally by a group of cultural organisations to celebrate and support everyday creativity happening in homes and public spaces. It aims to inspire people to try something new at home or at a Get Creative event and to encourage people to share their own examples of everyday creativity.
Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:
“Over the past couple of years the Get Creative events at our museum have proved a huge success and I’m sure this year will be just as popular with families - so pop along to meet new people and discover your creative flair.”
