About Creative People and Places 

Creative People and Places is an Arts Council England programme that supports amazing activities like singing, street art, drawing, dancing and many other experiences in your hometown, village, library, beach, or kitchen!

We will need your help, and your friends, neighbours and groups and local businesses to talk to us and to each other, to shape the types of activity delivered and develop a longer-term creative programme. 

The programme will build on the already great work done in West Cumbria, making sure that access to making, watching and being creative is something that everyone can be a part of.

It is a project which will run for 3 years from April 2022, and over the next 6 months, we will be collecting people’s thoughts, and offering make-and-do activities such as tasters, tea and more.

The We are Here Project is funded by the Arts Council England, Sellafield Ltd and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority
