Six Pillars

Six Pillars supports the emotional health and wellbeing of young people, aged 11-18, in six communities across Bolsover District and North East Derbyshire.

We are supporting young people in schools and in the community to build life-long skills, create new friendships and improve confidence to become the six pillars to their own positive self-esteem and healthy futures, exploring volunteer opportunities and career pathways.

So far the project has seen young people come together through a series of artistic taster activities, workshops and residencies involving exciting and diverse artforms, chosen by the young people themselves. From painting in VR, puppetry, filmmaking and storytelling, the new work created through each residency will be brought together in spring 2024 through performance, film or exhibition.

So far we have been working in a number of secondary schools in key areas delivering creative after school workshops, we also ran a schedule of summer holiday workshops in Bolsover, Clowne, Dronfield and Clay Cross.
