Introducing our new blog series

We’ve got loads happening at The Point over the coming months, and the best part is – there’s lots going on for families to get involved in.

There are family workshops on offer at weekends and during school holidays. As part of our BBC Children In Need funded project, All Aboard, we’re also launching a series of workshops designed for children with disabilities and their families. These sessions will provide the opportunity to explore sculpture, sound, photography and more in a fully inclusive building with disabled access and a Changing Place facility.

To align with our upcoming sessions, we are launching a new blog series which will run into the summer, exploring the benefits of the arts on children’s wellbeing.

As we say in our ethos: enjoyable creative activity helps communities and individuals fulfil their potential… our mission is to create art with people in Doncaster to improve life, learning and health.

We have plenty of experience in developing children’s relationship with the arts, and developing the creative skills of children and young people. Over the coming months, members of our team will be blogging about the impacts that our work has on young people’s wellbeing.

Of course, the positive impact of the arts isn’t just for children – it’s for everyone. But childhood is where that positive impact can and should start, which is why we work hard to immerse children across Doncaster in the arts, from our work in schools to our activities for young people.

In April, our Programmes Manager and Dancer, Hayley, will write about the benefits of dance on children’s confidence and health, both physical and mental.
