Imagineer and Artichoke are to work with Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council to deliver a twelve month programme of arts activities across the borough, following a £750,000 Place Partnership Award by Arts Council England.
The Creative Explorers programme brings together Imagineer and Artichoke with local artists and communities in Nuneaton and Bedworth, including Grit Arts Collective. The work forms part of NBBC’s long term strategy for sustainable regeneration in Nuneaton and Bedworth. Over the year, activity will take place to R&D a large-scale outdoor event, plus community participation will be encouraged through a series of programmes.
Creative Explorers will give profile to an existing and often hidden network of artists and creative activity, engage all sectors of the community and thereby inspire people and communities to value and embed art-making practices into their lives.
