Stuart Wroe: Extending Practice Celebrating Place

“The work is a celebration of North Yorkshire on many levels, reinforcing identity and community spirit. The commission provided the opportunity to work with musicians from the area and explore the North Yorkshire landscape and ways of life, and the composition turned out to be an amazing musical journey.”

“I want to let you know how useful and informative the recent courses run by Creative North Yorkshire have been. I found the ‘Making a funding Application’ gave me great insight into the criteria expected of applicants and I came away full of new ideas about creative possibilities.

An added dimension to all three of the courses I have attended since Sept’ 2011 is that, as a tutor of Art and Design and a creative professional in the process of obtaining a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education, I have been able to use my time with you not only to evidence my continued professional development in my coursework, but to transfer my new knowledge to my students. In this way your help and advice has been extended into the wider community.

Once again, thankyou for all your help and support and I look forward to attending events with you in the future.”
