7CC are embarking on a major arts project funded by the Arts Council of Wales. They met with Gill from the Arts Council in October and explored their interests, they've interviewed and selected the artists they're going to work with and now they're just about ready to get started.

In brief, the project will involve the students working next term with two professional artists and two teachers all day for one day a week for two months. Angahard works at the University of Chester and specialises in Capoeira (Brazillian dance/martial art); Maria is a visual artist.

We want to see what happens when we fuse these two art forms - we think it's going to be electrifying. We believe that this experience will have a major impact upon all of the students long term educational achievement and to ensure this is the case we need your support.
