Greenprint goes arty!
* Meeting with the Cumberland and Westmorland Herald to agree how the Greenprint Festival and wider project could be covered.
* Alston ‘bank notes’ are specially designed for the Greenprint consultation. The community are asked to prioritise how they’d spend these Bolt, Ginnel and Snicket notes.
* Neighbourhood and community planning meeting with Eden District Council and ACTion with Communities in Cumbria, to discuss the Eden Local Plan, affordable housing, housing need and demand and the launch of the Community Housing Fund.
* The Alston ARK is built! Community art and engagement in collaboration with Earthkin. Earthkin were established as part of the ARTCOP21 in response to the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP21) to succeed and build a sustainable global culture. Climate change is often seen through a policy or scientific lens, and solutions are discussed only in political offices, boardrooms and negotiating halls. ArtCop21 launched ahead of the UN climate talks in Paris, aimed to challenge those tropes. Climate is culture.
