Disabled and Elderly to put Fareham’s History on the map

Live Art Local CIC/ Sticks Gallery would love to let you all in on a little secret………

A few months ago we applied for some funding to run a series of workshops examining the history of Fareham borough with older, isolated people living in the borough; families with disabled children and adults with learning disabilities. These workshops would culminate in an exhibition and the publication of a new heritage trail map for Fareham.

We are very pleased and excited to announce that on Friday we received confirmation that we had been successful in our grant application. The workshops will run this summer and will be a chance for our chosen groups to get creative, make new friends, learn new skills, find out about Fareham’s history and produce an exhibition and history trail they can feel proud of.

After publication the heritage trail will be available to buy and all monies from the sale of the map will be divided between Live Art Local CIC and charities/groups that help those groups working on the project.

We will be posting more information in due course
