Support a creative cause
Creative activities and events often start small and need help to spread the word to get people involved and make an impact. They often need financial support, so raising money can be a big help! On your own or in a group, think about what cause you would like to support and how you might be able to do this!
Where to start
Concrete Culture is a community led cooperative working to bring Southend’s iconic Kursaal back into use. Have a look at their work and get involved.
Could you help to raise money for creative activities by local people? Many organisations hold fundraising events, such as TOMA or Leigh Folk Festival. Could you help? Or devise your own way for something new!
Get the word out! Think about what needs to be done to raise the profile of your cause – this could be creating posters, writing letters or using social media.
