Welcome to the Whitley Bay 'Our Bigger Story' website. This is part of the multi media evaluation of 15 Big Local areas in England. The website is an opportunity to follow what is changing in Whitley Bay as a result of Big Local over a ten year period.
The aim of the website is to share the learning from everything that is happening in Whitley Bay with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers
Four representatives of our Creative Civic Change project group traveled to the amazing Battersea Arts Centre for a national Learning Event. It was good to meet the national project team, funders, artist facilitators and reps from the other 16 CCC areas. We aim to develop a project that will bring a significant funding pot to Whitley Bay to support arts and creative work linked to our annual community carnival.
