Swindon Does Arts 

New initiative aims to get everyone in Swindon actively engaged in arts activities 
 
Singing, dancing, circus skills, filming and photography were just a number of activities on offer today at the Wyvern Theatre as part of a day dedicated to art and culture - Swindon Does Arts.

An event organised by Swindon Borough Council, featuring a number of groups with one thing in mind: promoting and actively engaging people in great arts activities.

"There are so many different ways to enjoy 'art' and this year it's all about getting Swindon to engage in the arts," commented Helen Miah, Head of Culture in Swindon. 
 
"It's wonderful to see so many people here enjoying themselves. It all helps us identify people's wants and demands."

The day was part of a big plan of activities that hopes to raise the profile of all things artistic in Swindon and provide exciting opportunities for even more people to take part.

Crowds drawn by piazza circus skills for virgins
to the sound of jemba drums
as Mayor's budget juggles Clubs

Camels were squeezed through needles' eyes
as Swindon Does Big Arts
felt its logo sequins dancing

Dancing tears of joy
allowing for art expressing sadness
as plasticine is rolled and moddled by Kelly S

for overhead animation shots
as plasticine elbmows womble
and engage in not rubbishing Art in Swindon
