Music & Dance to Support Your Health & Happiness
ART BRASIL is a not-for-profit collective of freelance artists working in movement and music.
We aim to improve health and well-being by providing opportunities for all in our community of North Staffordshire to lead a healthy and active physical and social lifestyle.
The way we work in our communities has changed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our team of freelance artists worked hard to adapt their teaching, content and delivery to work from home, enabling us to our continue our community classes programme for our members to attend classes online. With thanks to Together Active (formerly Sport Across Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent) who funded us via the Sport England & National Lottery Tackling Inequalities Fund, we were able to sustain our community class programme online and make the gradual transition for groups to resume in-person. Funding from the National Lottery Local Connections Fund has also enabled us to provide in-person groups for older adults. A grant from the Prime Foundation enabled us to take time during the pandemic to train further, particularly focussing on our work with older adults in the community. Read more about how we are continuing to support our members and the classes we are offering here.
