Like arts organisations across the world, we have had to cut some of our arts projects short. Our participants have missed out on exciting, creative activities, and so we’ve reassigned the money to five Dorset artists and arts organisations that will be creating free activities people can enjoy at home.

Anna Golding, Fingerprint Dance

A new video is released every Thursday at 3pm. Watch here.

Anna will guide you through gentle chair-based and standing exercises for 30 minutes. These will work to develop physical health (flexibility, balance, co-ordination, strength) and well-being (self-expression, enjoyment, emotional release, mind and body connection).

Since 2011, Anna Golding has established and delivered a programme of inclusive dance projects in Dorset. Anna now runs the Community Interest Company, Fingerprint Dance, which was set up in 2019.

Fingerprint Dance celebrates diversity and different life experiences, enriching mental and physical health and challenging inequalities in the arts industry. Fingerprint Dance believe art is powerful and can changes lives. Uncertain times require art to provoke and question, as well as soothe and restore faith in each other.

Hugh’s Musical Walks

A new video is released every Friday at 3pm. Watch here.

Join Hugh on a musical ‘walk’ from the comfort of home as each 10-minute episode features tunes both old and new. Sing, clap or whistle along, and then each week we’ll invite you to suggest where you’d like to venture next!

BSO Associate musician Hugh Nankivell is a popular figure across the South West where he and his accordion are known for bringing cheer to care homes, hospitals and schools.
