Down To Earth is a new Arts Council England’s national Creative People and Places (CPP) programme. It invites Wigan residents to shape and create art and culture, focusing on the borough’s green spaces and community hubs as sites for cultural engagement. Drawing on the natural assets of the local area and Wigan borough’s well-known sense of humour and fun, the programme will invite local communities to shape arts and culture that can happen within minutes, rather than hours, of their homes, parks, schools and best-loved spaces.
