Fermynwoods Contemporary Arts Project
01 Jul 2007
This is part of a larger scheme funded by several bodies including Northamptonshire County Council, Arts Council and the Ernest Cook Foundation. It is aimed at bringing arts to a wider audience including schoolchildren.
Many of the events are held in the surrounding woods or at Sudborough Green meadows SSSI and provide creative opportunities for children and adults normally not available.
This grant helps with costs associated with fitting out the cottages and workshop, running events and workshops, materials and the production of educational documents
