  • VICTORIA SQUARE

    CHRISTMAS LIGHT SWITCH ON

    When Victoria Square were interested in adding a community parade to their Christmas Light Switch on extravaganza - we were delighted they came to us!

     

    For the last 5 years we have curated a parade involving over 500 participants from a range of arts organisations, community groups, schools and charities adding an extra special feel-good family atmosphere to their event!

     

    We also help them source the very best creative talent including community choirs, aerial silk artists and musicians to create the Christmas event of the season - which keeps their customers coming back year after year.

    HERBERT SMITH FREEHILLS 

    Communication & VOICE TRAINING

    Who better to teach you how to communicate effectively than a trainer who works with some of Hollywood's biggest stars!

     

    Herbert Smith Freehills wanted to improve the communication skills of their whole team and we were able to connect them with Michael Corbidge, Senior Voice Coach for the Royal Shakespeare Company.

     

    A week of theatre based skills using Shakesperian texts helped the team vastly improve their voice, posture, communication and confidence.

     

    We think - if it's good enough for Dame Judi Dench - it's certainly good enough for the HSF Team!

    ULSTER BANK

    THRILLING TEAM BUILDING

    We were contacted by Ulster Bank to provide a creative and innovative way to help them engage their team members and promote diversity. What better way than an afternoon learning to dance!

     

    Working with Doogan Dance Academy participants first learnt the moves from Michael Jackson's Thriller before working with Titanic Denim to create some fabulous costumes and apply the essential zombie make up.

     

    Finally participants all took part in the filming of their final dance. We heard they also got some pretty strange looks on their bus rides home!

    BANK OF IRELAND

    BE AT YOUR BEST CHOIR

    Partnering with professional choir leader Dr Thomas Brown we were delighted to provide a workplace choir programme for Bank of Ireland as part of their wellbeing programme Be At Your Best.

     

    The programme is designed to support their staff's mental health so as singing is proven to increase well being it was the obvious choice!

     

    Staff took part in a series of weekly choir sessions which led to a final performance entertaining customers in a number of their branches.

     

    FAIRHILL SHOPPING CENTRE

    BUSINESS AWARDS

    We were asked by Fairhill Shopping Centre to deliver their 2019 Fairhill Business Awards process designed to recognise the hard work, commitment and dedication of the tenants and staff in Fairhill Shopping Centre.

     

    10 categories were judged using a range of different methods including written entries, interviews, mystery shops and customer surveys.

     

    The awards gala in Tullyglass Hotel was a fitting way for Fairhill management to celebrate the achievements of all the entrants and winners.

     

    BDO

    NETWORKING TRAINING

    How do you learn to network effectively?

     

    You get up and practice!

     

    The Young professionals network from BDO worked alongside Andrea Montgomery from Terra Nova Productions in a unique training we developed to teach them the best ways to network.

     

    Learning skills including joining and leaving a conversation, introducing yourself and confident body language, delegates were not only given the relevant skills but a safe environment in which to put it into practice.

    VICTORIA SQUARE

    10th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS

    In 2018 Victoria Square were celebrating their 10th Birthday and came to us for inspiration!

     

    As they wanted to create stronger connections with local schools we developed an art-competition to create a piece of art in the triangular shape of their iconic dome.

     

    Almost 1000 budding artists rose to the challenge and the beautiful winning pieces were displayed in the dome to celebrate the birthday.

     

    We also commissioned Aly Harte to create a painting of the dome as well as delivering schools workshops to our winners!

    FAIRHILL SHOPPING CENTRE

    STORY WALL COMPETITION

    The Fairhill Story Wall Competition is an annual event which encourages local children to get creative and draw their favourite book - addressing curriculum areas of both literacy and art.

     

    We have consistently attracted over 2000 entries into the competition by creating strong relationships with schools and teachers in the Ballymena area.

     

    When the judging is complete - the 12 winners have their beautiful artwork framed and proudly displayed in the Centre's Food Court for the rest of the year!

    HENDERSON GROUP

    DRUMMING AND SINGING TEAM BUILDING

    With over 150 attendees to engage and entertain during their annual HR away day, The Henderson Group contacted us requesting a fun team building activity which also explored themes of leadership and communication.

     

    Not content with just one art form we created an interactive musical experience combining both singing and drumming!

    .

    The group was split into two - each group worked on a different element and then came back together to create an amazing cacophony of sound - or something like that!

     

    The team really through themselves into both elements and the activity even encouraged The Henderson Group to start their own workplace choir - which of course we were delighted to arrange for them too!

    MID ULSTER DISTRICT COUNCIL

    PEACE IV ARTS WORKSHOPS

    Ten Minutes More were appointed by Mid Ulster District Council to deliver an Arts PEACE IV programme for the area.

     

    60 workshops are currently being delivered in three towns using various art forms including music, dance, theatre, vlogging, craft and drumming.

     

    This supports the mental health and wellbeing of the participants encouraging them to take time out for themselves, connect with new people and learn and create something together.

     

    The project is supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB)
