Right Up Our Street is Doncaster’s successful Arts Council ‘Creative People & Places’ bid made by consortium partners darts (Doncaster Community Arts), Cast, Doncaster Culture & Leisure Trust (DCLT) and Doncaster Voluntary Arts Network (DVAN).
In 2012 Arts Council England launched Creative People & Places, a fund to focus their investment on parts of the UK where people’s involvement in the arts is significantly below the national average. Their approach was to support a number of action research partnerships bringing together communities, artists and arts organisations to experiment with new ways of engaging local people in the arts, now here we have ‘Right Up Our Street’!
The first phase of the project ran from 2013- 2016. Right Up Our Street then successfully secured funding for a second phase of activity until 2019.
