Voluntary Norfolk is leading a £1.1 million, four year project in Great Yarmouth supported by Arts Council England, as part of their Creative People & Places programme.
Freshly Greated aims to increase participation in the arts among groups of people who are currently least likely to get involved as either audiences or creators. Low participation rates can be due to affordability, accessibility, language or cultural barriers or the fact that some people feel arts ‘is not for them’.
Freshly Greated will involve local people from the start as programmers, creatives and arts leaders and ultimately as audiences.
The project is a partnership between Voluntary Norfolk, SeaChange Arts, Creative Collisions, Jays UK Ltd and Great Yarmouth Borough Council, who collectively bring a wealth of expertise, knowledge and experience in community arts and neighbourhood projects.
See the Freshly Greated website for more information and to sign up to get involved.
