MHT – A Dancer’s Isolation Diary

With the Mike Howley Trust funding round now open for 2020/2021, we have asked previous MHT recepients what they have been up to during Isolation and how they have found new ways to be creative staying at home.

Here is a video put together by Dancer Jorja Follina Dance & Fitness

“This is a collection of moments from my time in isolation. As a dancer it has been very important to keep active and finding ways to continue researching movement,even in a small. I didn’t put too much pressure on what I did each day, as long as I found movement in some way. Some days have been difficult and felt unproductive, other days I felt incredibly inspired – and I wanted to show this fluctuation in the video.”

Even a little money can make a big difference at Quay Arts

Did you realise that when you buy a cup of freshly ground barista coffee in our Café Bar, you are helping to support the cultural life of the Isle of Wight?

However, the generosity of our supporters goes beyond sales of food, drink and theatre tickets. Gifts of money, time, and even specific items make a huge difference to the amount of work we can do. Together, we can continue to enrich the lives of islanders and visitors with our fantastic programme of events.
