Bubble Up is an innovative recovery learning programme from cultural education charity Curious Minds. The programme responds directly to the widespread concern about the impact Covid-19 isolation is having on children’s education and welfare, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. Bubble Up began as a response the Coronavirus Pandemic and extended school closures in the first half of 2020.
That summer, Curious Minds commissioned and supported 17 artists and grass-roots cultural organisations to plan and deliver a series of covid-safe extra-curricular learning clubs in disadvantaged neighbourhoods across the North West of England. WigLe Dance is proud to be a Bubble Up partner having delivered projects in Summer and Autumn 2020. Our current year 7 cohort still meet every Thursday and are looking forward to returning to the studio in April.
