Could you help make the Staffordshire Moorlands a more ‘Creative’ place?

Would you and your group like to be involved in a collaborative project that brings more arts and cultural activity to the Staffordshire Moorlands?

Support Staffordshire is working with a small group of lead organisations to develop a bid to Arts Council England’s ‘Creative People and Places’ programme for a project in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

Creative People and Places funding event for Cannock and Tamworth

An information event is being held in Cannock Chase on 24th October to invite community organisations to find out about a new funding opportunity for the local community called Creative People and Places. 

Who is the funding for? 

There’s considerable funding available and they are looking for community organisations or groups that can partner with cultural organisations to apply. They want to ensure that local people have a real say in the decisions about the activities on offer.

Proposed next steps for Staffordshire Library Service

The county council is continuing to transform Staffordshire’s Library Service so that it remains relevant in the digital age, maintains a presence at the heart of our communities and is affordable for the future.

Papers proposing the next steps for the service have been published in readiness for consideration at a meeting of Prosperous Staffordshire Select Committee on 20 June.

Improving support for arts groups and artists in Staffordshire Moorlands

A review of the support available to arts-based community groups and individual artists in the Staffordshire Moorlands is to be undertaken during May and June 2018.

Support Staffordshire is collaborating with Stoke-on-Trent-based charity B arts to carry out this study.

Susan Clarke, Artistic Director for B Arts, says, ‘Through the review we hope find out local people’s ideas and aspirations – we want to know what they feel is needed to enhance arts and creativity in the Staffordshire Moorlands and encourage participation and enjoyment by all ages and at all levels.’
