What are smArt ideas to beat COVID-19?
smArt ideas to beat COVID-19 are new creative projects that can bring people together in Whitley Bay and make it an even better place to live, even during social distancing.
Creative Civic Change through Whitley Bay Big Local will offer residents in Whitley Bay opportunities to get involved in artistic and creative activities. As we can’t get together to share our art, we’re looking at ways, YOU, the community can use art to bring a smile, encouragement and a sense of connection and community while we are apart.
smArt ideas to beat COVID-19 is a way to help make your new creative ideas happen during lockdown. We can offer you cash to support creative projects that safely involve people in Whitley Bay either through participation or being part of a “virtual audience”. The maximum grant we will award is £200 which can be spent on materials and other expenses to make the ideas happen but does not cover salaries or paying for your time.
Coronavirus update - we are looking at ways to make project activities available to people in the local area during the current lock-down.
