Research theme: Participatory Arts and Sustainable Design
Transported is a strategic, community-focused programme that aims to get more people in Boston Borough and South Holland in Lincolnshire enjoying and participating in arts activities. The Arts Council England ‘Creative People and Places’ funded project is managed by a consortium from artsNK, Lincs Artist Forum and Lincolnshire CVS.
The Creative People and Places fund focuses investment in parts of the country where people’s involvement in the arts is significantly below the national average, with the aim of increasing the likelihood of participation. This investment aim to encourage long-term collaborations between local communities and arts organisations, museums, libraries and local authorities, as well as empower them to experiment with radically different approaches, and develop inspiring, sustainable arts programmes that will engage audiences in those communities.
