Good things to do at home…

Qube have teamed up with Taking Part and Shropshire Council to create imaginative, fun and creative activities for people who would normally attend Day Care Services to do at home during lockdown and beyond. The resources below have been made especially for the ‘Good things to do at home’ project by creative practitioners from across the country. Take a look at the videos and resource sheets below.

We want to see your work! Send us a picture of your work to art@qube-oca.org.uk or the ‘Good things…’ Facebook page and we’ll create an online exhibition showcasing all your wonderful work.
