Something a little bit different for Bravos. And for support attend an online meeting on Friday 24th May 10:00-11:30am to find out more.

This is open to all members, in addition to other projects you attend this season.

Reflect on your time with Bravo 22 and respond to the following statement creatively: Create a gift to who you were when you started with Bravo 22, from the creative person you have become. 

It could be your artwork, writing, a filmed performance. it’s up to you and, most importantly, the team are able to offer a budget of up to £30 per person for materials. However there will be some limitations on sizes, weights and lengths.

The deadline to send a picture of your community project to the Bravo team will be Monday 12th August 9:00am. The team hope to place your work into an online installation to celebrate Bravos and their work.
