2014 Social Housing Arts Network
This 18 month partnership project was led by Manchester based artist collective Guild, with £89,000 from the Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Fund and contributions from the four project partners: Bolton at Home, Poplar HARCA, South Yorkshire Housing Association and St Leger Homes.
It involved a variety of community food-growing and community cooking activities with refugee and asylum seeker adults and children. At the end of the project, the ‘Growing, Cooking, Sharing Box’ was created to provide a whole community resource that offers recipes, growing tips and stories gathered from those involved in the project. The Box has toured Breightmet Library, our Breightmet UCAN Centre and community events inside and outside Bolton.
