Wakefield Council


Best Arts Project 2022

Together & Apart

What our judges said:


This project is so heartwarming! Showcasing work made in a really difficult time but in a positive way is a simple but devastatingly effective idea, and the emergency grants for creative organisations/individuals should be rewarded and highlighted to other LAs as an important way to support us all in 2022.


A project borne out of the pandemic which forged new relationships between local creatives and the council, which is always something to be celebrated. A large number of people were involved, adding to a sense of community cohesion following a very isolating time. I’d like to thank Wakefield Council for offering emergency grants to creatives at an extremely financially challenging time
