Year 9 GigArts Project

On Tuesday 13th October, 10 students from Year 9 were taken to Marlborough School to take part in a Gig-Arts project lead by Abbie Cooke. Gig-Arts is a charity which aims to help people gain new skills in communication and the creative arts, give back to the community and provide opportunities to get up on stage and perform a ‘gig’ to the public.

To start off the day, Abbie welcomed us to the Gig-Arts workshop and she told us about her story of becoming an artistic entrepreneur. We were split up into groups of ten, including students from Lord Williams’ School, Wheatley Park School and Marlborough School. In these teams, each group was given a theme: teamwork, simplicity, love and equality. Everyone in the groups was given canvas to create artwork on which captured our given theme. We were then asked to create bunting for a child bereavement charity called SeeSaw. This bunting will now be displayed at SeeSaw’s events and aims to bring happiness and hope to children in our community. To complete the workshop each group created a performance with a message about their theme which was performed to an audience as a gig.

 All of the students really enjoyed the Gig-Arts work shop, many described it as "an amazing experience," and "good for learning new life skills and meeting new people." I also agree that it was amazing, but it was also nice to give something back to the community.

This day was one of several different activity days organised throughout the year by Oxfordshire Business Education Alliance.  It gives students the opportunity to work with employers and students from other schools, developing skills needed to excel in school and move on successfully to the further education and the world of work.
