Our Projects Our Projects - Creative BasildON

Our Projects

The Creative BasildON programme is built on multiple projects that aim to engage across all of our communities. These were inspired by a range of unique cultural activities that were developed and assessed before putting in the application for funding to Arts Council England

Alongside this, extensive community discussions were undertaken to ensure the activity is what local people want to see! 

Below, you can find more in-depth information about each of the core projects – however, please remember, we still need YOU to shape them.

‘Young Pioneers’ is series of youth-led creative activities, developed through our creative skills development programme for 16-25 year olds, funded and supported by ReGeneration: 2013, a Creative Estuary project.

Supported by industry experts, our young pioneers developed their own project that uses creativity to drive change in their local areas – happening in February 2023.
