I supported many elements of the project including:

  • a community led arts festival called Best Fest
  • weekly inter-generational arts group called Creative Champions

  • resident project steering group
  • youth led social action projects
  • plaques celebrating everyday heroes
  • Arts & Kindness Week at Dame Janet Primary Academy
