Be Curious

Be Curious: A Free event at Colchester Firstsite hosted by Level Best Art Cafe’s art department Artco.

Join us for a day of chalk drawing and other arts and crafts in learning room 1 at Firstsite.

Level Best will provide chalk for drawing on one of the large black boards covering an entire wall, as well as rolls of paper and colouring materials to use in the space.

We will also be joined by Crafty Drama performing a number of songs for us between 1pm and 2:30pm, they are a group that helps build confidence and life skills through drama, dance and singing, enhancing the lives of people who have a disability.

The event is open to the general public and all are encouraged to bring a friend as well as whatever craft and arty things and experience they’d like to use or share on the day, or simply turn up and join in!

This will be our third such event and to get a flavour of what we’ve done before, please check out our blog post here

The Level Best Art Cafe in Colchester provides people with learning disabilities a range of opportunities to gain purposeful work experience and training together. Opened in 2008 as a social enterprise run by the Dacon Trust, the training within a town centre environment revolves around four projects based at the cafe or our nearby allotment: Dacon Bake, Seasonal Produce, Horticulture & Artco.

Level best is not just about work skills training, but life skills, inclusion and community participation
