Celebrate – England: Funding – Big Lottery Fund

Celebrate – England: Funding – Big Lottery Fund

Six out of ten people surveyed* say they cannot remember ever coming together to celebrate with their community. The Big Lottery Fund wants to help change this with our Celebrate! programme.

We are offering grants of between £300 and £10,000 for groups to hold one off events or activities which celebrate their local community.

You could celebrate something from your community’s history or a local hero. Or maybe it’s a chance to bring people together to get to know their neighbours better.

You can apply if you are a:

· voluntary or community organisation with a constitution and bank account
· school
· statutory body.
We are especially keen to receive applications from groups who have not applied to us before.

You will also need to show that your project is open to everyone in your local community.

We will give higher priority to applications from:

· projects which demonstrate communities coming together to celebrate and share their diverse cultures
· projects which actively bring different generations together.
We will fund activities that bring people together to celebrate their local community.

In your application we would like to know

· how the project will bring people together in the community to celebrate.
· why the activity is something your local community wants and how you can demonstrate it is led by the people within it.

Ange Mukeza: visual artis

Ange Mukeza: visual artis

My name is Ange Mukeza and I’m a visual artist currently working on a project called ‪#‎wonderworld‬ and i will be participating in two events in Camberwell

Camberwell Green Park opening, Saturday 16 July is going to be a celebration event at the park, as we say “Hello Camberwell Green”. 

Camberwell fair, 20th August: Camberwell Fair 2016 is a free-entry, one-day music festival and market showcasing the cultural diversity of Camberwell, we will have a live music stage, community stage, dance workshops, games, and market with local businesses running pop-up stalls. The 2016 edition is scheduled to take place in Burgess Park (Walworth Road end), with capacity of 3500, with 7500 people expected over the course of the day. 

I will be live painting and asking the public to paint alongside with me. we are looking to mount the final piece and find a final resting place for it. being site specific each piece is unique to the community that created it with the artist. so we want the final piece to have a home in the community where it was created. and this is where we need your help. If you have any suggestions or can help in anyway your help would be much appreciated. 

#Wonderworld is an art project that seeks to create a conversation between the artist and the public to explore what happens when the artist directly engages with its audience in the process of creating their work. The project promotes the innovative use of public engagement within the arts

Please do not hesitate to contact me for any questions or further discussion 
And don’t forget to come along on both events to put your mark down on the canvas.

Kind Regards
Ange Mukeza
