Creative People and Places

Have your say about Wigan:

What is the best thing about your community and Wigan Borough? What kind of things would you like to have a go at? Has the Covid-19 pandemic changed your perspective on what you would like to do with your time? The Old Courts and our partners are reaching out with the vision of supporting YOU to shape the local arts and cultural provision. Your answers will feed directly into Wigan’s Creative People and Places application to Arts Council England.

Have your say here on an application to Arts Council England’s Creative People and Places Fund.

Background info:

A consortium of cultural and community organisations from the borough led by The Old Courts and including The Turnpike, Lancashire Wildlife Trust, Groundwork, Wigan Athletic Community Trust and the Council are working on an application to Arts Council England as part of their Creative People and Places Fund. With asks of up to £1m, the fund offers a fantastic opportunity for the borough, an offer that will be designed and delivered with and by local communities.

To help shape the application we are seeking the views of our communities on what cultural activities are important to them now and what they would like to see in the future. Responses to the online questionnaire will feed directly into the application.
