The Community Associates were assembled in early 2016 when Phase Two of Right Up Our Street began.
The associates were drawn from the community teams from the different areas we worked in around the Doncaster borough and who had been particularly active during the first phase of the project.
There are associates from Balby, Bentley, Mexborough, Rossington, and Thorne and the Town Centre who meet on a regular basis. The associates contribute to key decisions made about the Right Up Our Street project, particularly making programming decisions and looking at Open Call applications along with the Project Director, the Project Coordinator and the Consortium.
The associates also have the opportunity for training and go and see visits. Recently, the associates have visited the Greenwich and Docklands Festival, Hatfair Festival and had training in Event Management and Audience Development.
