Upcoming Events & Performances

Welcome

Welcome to Green Shoes Arts. We are a passionate team of professional arts facilitators based in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham who want to see positive change in our local community through participation in the arts.

 

We know that being involved with the arts as a participant or as an audience member can have a profound effect on people’s lives. Whether it is running a film project for young people at risk of exclusion or giving adults with learning difficulties the chance to create stories and perform in front of an audience, we know that life is made more enjoyable and rewarding when we spend time doing something creative with a group of friends, old and new.

 

We work with people of all age groups from all communities living in Barking & Dagenham. We want to make arts accessible to all and promote the many benefits that being involved in the arts can bring.

 

Want to know more about us? Give us a call, pop in and see us or click through our website to see some of the faces of people we work with – they’re a brilliant group!
