Creative Communities Urban is a two year project working in the communities of Midway and Newhall, alongside community groups to develop new creative projects. Funded by a Derbyshire County Council Community Priorities grant, the aim of the work is to develop new steering groups, to boost creative activity in these areas and add to the opportunities available in these areas for local people. Through the project we will be able to support community groups to run creative activities and events for communities, designed and developed by people that live within them.
