North Warwickshire and Nuneaton Arts Challenge Fund

This project will establish an Arts Challenge Fund to put the “buzz” back into Warwickshire’s town centres in the northern part of the county.  It will engage local artists alongside experienced place curators to create innovative experiences which stimulate the economic and social wellbeing of the towns, and the wider rural hinterland which depends upon them.

Funding: Total Cost: £434,370, Getting Building Funding: £194,370

Working with key partners including the Coventry City of Culture Trust, District and Borough Councils, competitive submissions from artists will be sought to drive regeneration of the High Street.

This project focuses on revitalising town centres in northern Warwickshire, creating long term improvements.  The affected towns will be former mining towns, market towns and one of Warwickshire's largest town centres in Nuneaton.  The project will utilise local creatives, supporting the freelancer community, who have been particularly impacted by the pandemic.
