Network

We believe that together, we can achieve more than the sum of our parts. Our network values kindness and collaboration as fundamentals of creating lasting change in our town.  If you’d like to get involved and be part of this journey with us then fill out the membership form below to sign up!

 

Creative West End is a community-led partnership, made up of local people and organisations that believe creativity and the arts can play an important role in the future of our community.  This Network is open to all who support the aims and values of the group.  We are actively inviting residents, artists and arts organisations to come together as a force for creative change.  

 

Our model is simple - to work with and engage with our community through creative projects, a locally run market and other events to find out what matters to people, and work with our network to develop ideas in these areas.  Thanks to Creative Civic Change funding and additional support from West End Morecambe Big Local partnership we have some money available to support some of these community led ideas.

Network Events

January 2022: Kickstarting 2022

Thurs 20th Jan | 7-9pm on zoom

This event has now been rescheduled to run online:
https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84072336843...

Join us for the upcoming CWE Network Gathering where we'll be sharing key dates for the upcoming year.
 

We'll be joined by Steve Fairclough who will be working with us over the next year to plan and produce a programme of Inspiration and Learning Events that are intended to spark ideas, connect us with key artists we'd like to learn from and generally get us excited about the future!

We'll also be joined by local artist & illustrator Charlotte Done who will creatively capture our discussions on the night creating a doodle map for us to look back on and look ahead helping us navigate the future and what we might achieve together over the months ahead.

 

For those that are unable to access zoom for any reason please contact hello@creativewestend.net and we can look to arrange an alternative to ensure your views are heard and you get the information you need.

New Programme launching soon for 2022!

INSPIRATION & LEARNING FUND

We have allocated £5000 to an Inspiration and Learning Fund per year of the Creative Civic Change Programme for network members to draw down based on network needs. For example, you might wish to arrange a visit with fellow network members and draw down funds to help make this happen. This might be a trip to a relevant town or project, booking of a workshop or a visit to the cinema or other cultural experience. All we would ask is that you share the experience with the rest of the network via blog or an update at a network event. 

 

You might like to invite a guest to our Inspiration and Learnings sessions.

We are open to what network members feel would be a useful way to spend this money and very much look forward to hearing from you!

All submissions will be reviewed and need approving by our partnership steering group that meet on the first Thursday of every month.
