Welcome to the Revoe Blackpool 'Our Bigger Story' website. This is part of the multi media evaluation of 15 Big Local areas in England. The website is an opportunity to follow what is changing in Revoe Blackpool as a result of Big Local over a ten year period.
The aim of the website is to share the learning from everything that is happening in Revoe Blackpool with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
Over the last few months, through community chest and consultation, we saw the potential that art based activities provided for the area and were keen to see this grow. We managed to gather a group of local community artists ranging from traditional to movement to dance to music, who were hungry to meet and explore options. It was felt that creating an art's base on Central Drive would be an ideal way to tackle a few of the issues raised through the plan, with this in mind we set about applying for the Creating Civic Change bid, the video was part of our submission. Unfortunately we were not successful BUT keen to keep this idea going and have been applying elsewhere for the relevant funds so watch this space!
