The Creative Quarter are conducting this mapping exercise, in association with Rebalancing the Outer Estates Foundation.
Our aim is to develop partnerships across the city - to devise projects that celebrate local peoples' creativity, support creative businesses and entrepreneurialism; unlock spaces for more creative use and promote the creative, cultural and heritage organisations' outreach offer to the outer estates. In this context, 'Creative activity' can mean all kinds of activity from traditional artforms (singing, film, art, theatre etc) to gardening projects, arts and health, and social eating projects - looking at new ways of thinking creatively and engaging communities.
The six wards within Nottingham North are: Aspley, Basford, Bestwood, Bilborough, Bulwell and Bulwell Forest. We invite creative and community organisations and groups to take part in this mapping exercise so that a picture of current activity can be established and shared, and strategies that build on existing strengths can be developed together.
Thank you for participating and I look forward to sharing the findings with you.
