ART, ACTIVISM & POLITICS IN THE PLACE WHERE WE LIVE
FUNDING TO HELP COMMUNITY MEMBERS MAKE THINGS HAPPEN THEMSELVES IN A MICRO CULTURAL DEMOCRACY PROJECT
We are raising money for a community project fund to be made available to people living in Dene Valley and Eldon parishes near Bishop Auckland in County Durham.
There will be a simple application process and the funding will help seed new ideas to try out in the area.
The funds raised will be used as part of the More Than Viable project which aims to help local people to demonstrate that their communities can develop new ideas and lead on the regeneration of their area - an area stigmatised by and underinvested in since it was part of County Durham's Category D pit village demolition programme.
PLEASE NOTE THAT DONATIONS WILL NOT BE BENEFITTING ME BUT THE PROJECT I AM LEADING ON BEHALF OF NORTHERN HEARTLANDS - A GREAT PLACE PROJECT SUPPORTED BY THE HERITAGE LOTTERY, ARTS COUNCIL ENGLAND AND HISTORIC ENGLAND.
