Delivered by Prism Arts

Prism Arts is based in North Cumbria and uses artistic activity to empower people with learning disabilities and autism. The charity creates opportunities for participants to make excellent art, develop skills, and showcase their talents, all while boosting confidence and wellbeing. In February and March this year Prism Arts have been working with a group of students from West Lakes College on an Arts Council England funded project called Picture of Me. The project also includes dance, film and street art which is taking place with groups in Carlisle. The project has taken place firstly at the college to develop skills and then on location at The Senhouse Museum to devise a piece of live storytelling that is inspired by the location, its Roman history and the incredible views from the cliff top. The show blends recorded audio with live performance outdoors. You will hear the voices of the students telling you their own stories along the footpath from the Senhouse Museum in Maryport to the sea front. The audience will be provided with over the ear headphones and guided along an accessible route. Please dress for the weather and ensure you have sturdy shoes.

Meet at the museum and follow the path down to the promenade, finishing at the Millenium Garden.
