New project Rekindle to bring creativity and culture to the heart of libraries.
03rd July 2023
Applause Rural Touring is thrilled to announce its partnership with Medway Libraries to embark on an innovative and nationally significant arts development program called Rekindle. This initiative places libraries at the heart of creative and cultural experiences for rural and underserved communities.
Project lead Creative Arts East has secured a substantial grant of £567,956 from Arts Council England to collaborate with library and arts partners across Medway, Norfolk, Sandwell, Blackburn, and Buckinghamshire, this pioneering three-year project will not only boost workforce skills but will also experiment with new models of audience engagement both within and beyond library spaces.
This ambitious endeavour will empower Medway Libraries to strengthen ties with the local cultural ecosystem, bringing culturally relevant and creatively vibrant activities to library users through a sustainable and innovative approach. Rekindle aims to transform libraries into hubs of artistic exploration and cultural immersion, fostering a new appreciation for these community cornerstones.
In Medway, the exhilarating family-friendly live shows will be brought to you by Nearly There Yet with The Flying Bazazi Brothers – a heady mix of celebrity, circus, and family history steeped in tradition.
