We’re delighted to share the news that the Arts Council England have announced that a total of £38.3 million will be invested in Creative People and Places projects nationally over the next three years to deliver more grassroots-led cultural experiences in areas across England where involvement in arts and culture is below the national average.
Super Slow Way have been awarded £1 million to continue our work across East Lancashire delivering creative projects with artists and communities that allow people to express their own cultural identities and celebrate their own everyday creativity. Over the past six years we have reached audiences in excess of 270,000 and it’s fantastic to be funded to continue to deliver this work across our region.
Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries said:
“Everyone, no matter where they are from, should be able to experience arts and culture. The fantastic Creative People and Place projects help make culture more accessible and strengthen bonds in local communities. I’m delighted that this £38.3 million funding will make sure more people across the whole of England have access to brilliant cultural and creative activities on their doorsteps.”
We are currently planning activities for 2022 – 25 including the return of Small Bells Ring in Spring 2022, Homegrown/Homespun, Linear Park Pilot projects and British Textile Biennial 2023.
