On September 7th 2013, Mimbre organised our first ever own festival, celebrating our home borough Hackney and all the great creativity and communities here. The day was a brilliant success, with so many lovely people that Mimbre has worked with over the years involved in making it happen: young people from our Youth Programme, their parents and siblings, all amazing artists we have worked with as teachers and performers and above all - our neighbours, friends and supporters coming out to enjoy the day!
A lovely documentary on our project with girls and their mums. Using acrobatics to improve self-esteem and body image.
Strong and Flying was funded by Rosa, the foundation for women and girls and The Big Lottery, delivered by Southern Housing Group through the Activate London Partnership a consortium of housing associations led by the Peabody Trust.
