Norden Farm's Young Creatives initiative is a chance for students of the arts to experience a real world industry brief and to work on community projects alongside artists, technicians and the public. This project gives students the opportunity to work with incredible arts professionals and to get their work seen by a wide audience.
This Christmas Norden Farm worked with a team of Young Creatives from Berkshire College of Agriculture. The students created a winter wonderland window display at The Nicholson Centre in Maidenhead based around Norden Farm's Christmas show, Kipper's Snowy Day. They also made a Kipper themed story den which hosted Christmas tales from the Nicholson Centre on Saturday mornings throughout December. Norden Farm was buzzing, with a Kipper photo booth and treasure hunt to accompany Mick Inkpen's wonderful drawing exhibition in the Gallery and the magic of the show itself.
