We're delighted to welcome the new places to our peer learning network from November 2019.  And we're looking forward to working with the new members of our CPP family, to share learning, build strong connections and support each other on this next phase.

Nine of the places announced are new to the Creative People and Places network, and three of the new places will be managed by existing Creative People and Places projects that are expanding into new locations.

  • Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland
  • Barrow 
  • Bradford
  • Rotherham
  • Basildon
  • Great Yarmouth
  • Sedgemoor
  • Bexley and Thamesmead
  • Havering
  • Dudley - led by Creative Black Country, an existing CPP project
  • Newcastle-under-Lyme - led by Appetite, an existing CPP project working in Stoke-on-Trent
  • Wellingborough - led by Made in Corby, an existing CPP project

In addition, Museums Northumberland, the lead organisation for CPP project bait, will receive funding to manage the peer learning network for a further two years.
