Our Making A Mark event this year although successful, did not go quite as we had originally planned due to Covid-19 lockdown measures and having been postponed from 2020. Some of the activities could no longer go ahead and some artists could not take part while others were no longer practical or possible, so a complete rethink was needed. The participating artists were fantastic, in most cases adapting their proposals to meet some ever changing guidance as we waited until just a few weeks before the planned date before things could be finalised. We are very grateful to them for their flexibility and support and for being part of such a fantastic event on July 17th.Continue reading “Making more marks…”

After some discussion with Preston City Council we are pleased to advise that the new date for our Making A Mark event for 2021 has been confirmed as Saturday 17th July. Previously we advised this was to be on the 10th July but has since had to be changed due to coinciding with another event scheduled for that day. So Saturday 17th July it is – we hope to see you then, by which time we all hope the current restrictions will have been lifted.

We are very excited to advise that 10th July 2021 has been confirmed by Preston City Council, who have also reconfirmed their support for the event. The Arts Council have also confirmed support so our previously agreed funding can be transferred to this new date which is a great relief and means we can begin planning again. The event, originally planned for July 2020 had to be postponed due to the Coronavirus lockdown and subsequent restrictions meant everything was put on hold.
We are now working on revising some of the plans and reworking the budget and will be in contact shortly with those artists who had previously submitted proposals before lockdown.
We plan to try and keep to the same theme as initially planned but it may of course be interpreted slightly differently in view of recent events.
Please bear with us.
