Welcome to Rainbow Voices
Rainbow Voices is a project of hope - bursting full of colourful crafts, uplifting songs and mindful moments that aim to help our local communities reflect, reconnect and rebuild in life after lockdown. Our project includes a mix of craft and singing activities to do at home, online or in-person at sessions touring to community venues. We want to help everyone get creative and get connected!
The Singing Elf is a Social Enterprise based in Pittington. In the summer, we led this free project in our local communities of Sunderland Coalfields with thanks to funding from Sunderland City Council. In the autumn, the project moves to areas around Durham City, thanks to funding from Durham Area Action Partnership. In the Winter, the project will be in Ushaw Moor, Langley Park, Esh and Esh Winning, thanks to funding from Mid-Durham Area Action Partnership.
