Best Arts Project 2022

LOVE Local Arts

What our judges said:


Revitalising the high street, particularly in the context of COVID-19 is a significant challenge for towns across the country. The LOVE Local Arts project is a great example of how cultural activity can be used to bring footfall back to town centres and create a new sense of place.


I love that this project encouraged the community to think differently about their young people, allowing them to showcase creative talent. A fantastic way to encourage people back to the high street after a long period of lockdowns, and the power of forging of new relationships between schools and arts organisations should not be underestimated and will have long-lasting impact. Well done, this is an imitative to be proud of.
