Walking with Giants (Festive Road CIC)
“making a GIANT difference together”
The project will put on a carnival and parade of giant puppets in Milton Keynes taking the success of previous events to create a larger, independent, free, community event that will involve at least 1,000 participants through a new programme of workshops and taking part in the event. Activities will include dance, puppet making, circus and music making workshops with schools, community groups and drop in sessions.
We bring local people of all abilities and backgrounds together through an inspiring programme of workshops, mass participation in cultural activity and through a large scale collective celebration in central Milton Keynes.
The inclusiveness of local people from deprived and disability backgrounds enables them to feel valued and a part of something very positive, giving them the opportunity to perform and to shine!
The participation helps build confidence through skill sharing, encouraging a sense of belonging and pride of place, helping new and transient families to feel welcome in the city.
