We are really excited to be part of The Great British Bike Off. This will be a new exceptional public art festival which we hope will engage people from all over Oxfordshire through their love of cycling and bicycles.
The Ark-T Centre in Cowley is a small but vital force in Cowley. We’re a charity that passionately supports those who face discrimination, who feel unheard and invisible. We’re all about using creativity as a vehicle for personal development and social change; creating exceptional public art and festivals which call out privilege, celebrate difference and increase community power.
At the Centre we run a wide range of workshops and projects including Creativity camps, and special festivals celebrating Disability and Diversity, and we are supported by some fantastic resident local artists.
Combining physical activity such as cycling with creativity is a wonderful example for how creativity can be used to promote positive life choices.
For us the Bike Off is a new and exciting opportunity to reach a wider audience and also – in the true spirit of Ark-T – create an innovative, imaginative, positive memory-making, fun family event which champions creativity for everybody and every age. Creativity can improve Health and well-being. Combining physical activity such as cycling with creativity is a wonderful example for how creativity can be used to promote positive life choices.
We do hope you take part in the Bike Off or just come along to enjoy the spectacle – hope to see you on the 21st October!
