In May we were very grateful to receive a grant from Arts Council England to support the development of our performance work at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. This included CPD for project artists Sam Hickey and Louise Gibbons in the form of a 5 day intensive with NY based dance artist K.j. Holmes. In addition K.j. was in residence with Small Things and led performance training with a particular focus on the voice and sonic environment with the dancers and musicians. This greatly enhanced our two day tour of the hospital in June.

We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded a grant from PH Holt Foundation to contribute to our work at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital from Sept 2017.
In September 2016 Cath Hawkins resigned from Small Things. After founding the organisation in 2002 and working collaboratively with Lisa and other artists for over 13 years, we would like to thank Cath and wish her well. Cath's current projects can be found here www.movingmarks.co.uk
