Pedestrian is a leading arts organisation specialising in music and arts education based in Leicester’s bustling city centre. Since 1998, we have built a strong track record of delivering high quality creative activity that has seen us complete over 14,000 workshops.
We provide education, training and outreach projects for young people at risk, vulnerable adults and communities in Leicester, Leicestershire and across the Midlands. Our participants are often socially excluded, not in education, employment or training (NEET) or experiencing disadvantage.
We believe with the right levels of support and timely intervention everyone can achieve their goals, we call this ‘Pioneering Potential’.
What We Offer
Every project is unique and is shaped by its participants and the community around it. Our experienced team of staff and professional tutors can create bespoke packages delivering a range of specialist workshops in a variety of creative disciplines.
We deliver these directly in schools, local communities, partner locations and personal settings such as care homes.
Pedestrian’s reputation has been built by its outreach workshops. Workshops are individually tailored to accommodate different needs and expectations. A selection of the artforms available include:
Music making (including turntablism, DJing, MCing, beat making, sampling)
Music performance (including song writing, guitar, drums, bass, recording, ensemble skills)
Interactive media (animation/ stop-motion, live briefs, photography, 3D photography, media)
Visual arts (graffiti, illustration, printmaking (lino print and mono print), sculpture, creative thinking and visual exploration)
Photography (portraiture, landscape, montages, DSLR, editing, Photoshop)
Performing arts (dance and drama)
Crafts (jewellery making, glass painting, mosaics, weaving, card making)
All workshops allow participants to learn about different artforms, develop skills and enhance knowledge, explore creativity supported by professionals, create art work in a safe and supported space and improve their mental health and well-being. We use industry standard equipment in all of our workshops.
