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

Wednesday 22nd June | 7.30pm - 10pm at More Music, Devonshire Road, Morecambe

Join us at More Music for a screening of the “The Street” by documentary film maker and photographer Zed Nelson. The film will start at 7.45pm sharp and finish around 9.20pm when we'll host a “Zoom with Zed” for a Q and A from 9.20pm with thoughts, discussion and questions.

THE STREET

Focusing on ‪one East London street over a four-year period - a film about love and loss, a community unravelled by gentrification, and the nation’s slide into Brexit. 

 

With the skyscrapers of the City glinting close by, the area surrounding Hoxton Street has been transformed by luxury developments and sky-high property prices.

 

As media start-ups and corporate property developers move in, the traditional working-class inhabitants of this East London street feel a deepening social divide. 

 

Set against the backdrop of rapid gentrification, years of austerity and the eruption of Brexit, Zed Nelson’s four-year epic delivers a comic, tragic and deeply moving portrait of not just a street, but a nation on the cusp of enormous change.

 

--------------

  

Feature-length documentary the 'THE STREET' premiered at the 2019 BFI London Film Festival, was shortlisted for the British Independent Film Award (BIFA) ‘Discovery Award’ and short-listed for a 2020 Grierson Award. ‘The Street’ was released in UK cinema's to critical acclaim (see press reviews at end of email).

Inspiration & Learning Trips

Looking further afield to expand our imaginations and to grow our network and connect with other groups, artists and organisations is key to our plan - as well as creating meaningful experiences for us to share togehter as a growing community.

 

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.
