Belonging in Crawley is an 18 month project funded by Arts Council England. The project started in April 2022. The project is overseen by a project manager, alongside 9 project volunteers. In the project we are working with a range of groups and individuals on what ‘Belonging in Crawley’ means to them. In 2022 we ran a number of workshops with people on the idea of belonging in Crawley.
We are now starting to plan pop up exhibitions which will take place in Crawley in 2023. The venues are:
January/February – at K2
March/April – at the Hawth Theatre
May – at County Mall
June/July – at Crawley Museum
As part of the project, in 2022 we ran a number of workshops with people to discuss the idea of belonging and ‘belonging in Crawley’. People discussed what the word ‘belonging’ meant to them, whether or not they felt that they belonging in Crawley, and what made them feel that way. We had a great time talking with people and have had some really interesting answers to our questions. If you would like to tell us your answers to the questions, you can answer them online at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/GPDTCRW
As part of the project we will be running four in person exhibitions, as well as creating an online version. We’ve had lots of ideas about what we could put in the exhibiton, and some people are loaning us items and creating art works and poetry. If you’d like to contribute to the exhibitions please get in touch!
