Basildon Success with Arts Council England Creative People and Places Scheme

Date published: 15/08/2019

Full Story:

Basildon has been awarded a £1,289,002 as part of the Creative People and Places 2019-2023.
 
It is the first time this grant has been awarded to a borough within Essex and is an exciting opportunity for both residents and businesses within the town. 
 
The Creative People and Places initiative has been specifically developed by Arts Council England for areas where evidence shows that there is low engagement with cultural activity and aims to put the local community at the heart of driving and delivering an array of diverse and engaging projects over a 4 year period. 
 
Led by Things Made Public CIC, The BasildON Creative People and Places programme is designed to empower the whole community – businesses and residents alike – to create a cultural democracy, developing a wide-range of activities and projects that give everyone the opportunity to be involved in shaping Basildon’s cultural and creative future.
