Heritage Lottery Fund

The Heritage elements of the Boundary Way Project’s work have been funded through an ‘Our Heritage’ grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, who are the largest dedicated funder of Heritage in the UK. Their grant has enabled us to explore the natural and social heritage of Boundary Way and share it with you at events like our Arts & Heritage Weekend, as mentioned above.

Arts Council England

In 2017 the Boundary Way Project received funding from Arts Council England to work with artists on site and develop a framework for further development. As a result, we worked with artists Hannah Boyd, Clare Wassermann, Kanj Nicholas, Sue Chand, Richard Shilling and storyteller Ana Lines. This culminated with the Sense of Place exhibition in October 2017 and a series of skill sharing sessions, workshops and collaborations.

Through our partnership with Arts Connect we secured a grant that allowed us to carry out a successful pilot of the Arts Award at Boundary Way with the Sixth Formers from Penn Fields School. Arts Award is a great opportunity for students to gain a wider understanding of the art world through workshops, research and visits. It is a nationally recognised qualification that helps young people progress into further education and employment.
