The Creativity Programme will develop new and innovate ways to engage audiences, particularly young people in the community. This will be achieved by developing mini projects that encourage people to discover and engage with their natural landscape. An exciting project that will help participants to explore their creativity and be supported along the way through workshops and mentoring.

Rediscovering the Fifth Continent – Creativity Programme contributes to Rediscover project theme.

Vital Creative Community Engagement Programme Launched

The Vital Creative Community Engagement programme gives you four confidential one2one mentoring sessions and three group workshops. It is designed to help you to increase your confidence, skills and techniques for developing and engaging people, especially young people, who live in Romney Marsh area. The programme will support you in creating and developing new, exciting and innovative project engagement ideas into viable projects with the Romney Marsh community. The projects will have a focus on enhancing the appreciation and conservation of the Heritage and Wildlife of the local area. We are now looking to work with local organisations and groups to be part of this programme, developing new ideas and projects which will improve the way we engage with people and enhance their experience of nature and the heritage that is all around them.
