The Big Sidewalk Ebay Sale!

on Tue, 2016-08-23 14:26

As part of our fundraising efforts this year we are holding 'The Big Sidewalk Ebay Sale' to raise money for the work of Sidewalk. We all have items lying around which we've been meaning to get rid of. We know they're worth something to the right person, but they might not be bested suited in a charity shop. Ebay is great for such items as you can reach millions of people with a few simple clicks.

We're looking for donations of items worth a minimum of £5 (anything less than that it probably best given to a charity shop). If you have anything that you think might be worth something and would like to donate it to the sale please email admin@sidewalk-scarborough.org.uk or call 01723 366186. We will be collecting items throughout september and uploading them as they come in. Many thanks for your support it will make a real difference!

'Miraculous and Abstract' - Sidewalk Youth Choir and Arts Project

on Tue, 2016-08-23 14:07

After receiving funding from the Art Council Lottery Fund , we were finally able to start our youth choir and arts project in the spring! With the help of community choir leader Rebecca Denniff and Artist David Owen, we went on a ten week creative journey. On this journey we sampled all manner of creative goodness including learning to sing, creating collages and making our own graffiti tags. As the weeks went on, we stated to create lines and phrases, then in true David Bowie style, laid these snippets out on the floor and then started to bring them together into a song. The end result is 'Desolate City' a story of struggle, randomness hardship, joy and hope. It is as one line puts it 'Miraculous and Abstract' all in the same breath. After creating the lyrics we set about laying down some vocals which were recorded and then mixed into a track. To compliment the song we created a video of all the visual projects we had done throughout the journey. This was brought together into a psychedelic collage which captures the fun and the rich diversity of of young people's lives. Thank you to all who were involved and for the support from our funders.
