East Peak - the villages of poetry

A grant to Art in the Park of £58,089 has been approved by the East Peak Innovation Partnership for support for a volunteer training programme for local people in Stannington, Penistone and Denby Dale. Training/development sessions for local residents will be delivered in the form of workshops focusing on, for example, art techniques, confidence building and child protection training. The aim is to provide skills which will enable volunteers up to run their own events and to create self sustainable groups and networks to continue activity, training and events. The project aims to use local green spaces either as inspiration during the workshops or as a focus for the events. The project will also include poetry work with schools. Alongside this, open access poetry events in local green spaces will be delivered together with the opportunity for people to write and share their work.
