How is Market Place Run?

Market Place is about people coming together for one good cause. This project is run by a Consortium of Partners, where each contributes to the strategic direction of the programme. Market Place Project Team are appointed by the Consortium to guide and deliver the programme reporting to the Consortium and funders on a regular basis.

ADEC is the lead Consortium Partner. 20Twenty Productions CIC is an organisation in Fenland with unique knowledge and understanding of the arts scene and audiences in the seven market towns. Festival Bridge represented by Steph Hogger, who Chairs the Consortium, give an insight into the arts world across Cambridgeshire and Suffolk, link us with education providers in these areas.

Communities are key to shaping the programme, that’s why Creative Forums help us identify the needs and interests of people in each town. Creative Forums act as a productive network of creative producers spotting local opportunities and evaluating the proposals. Creative Forum Coordinators and the Market Place team work closely with the Forums to initiate projects and activities in the seven market towns.

We also have a Critical Friend and an Evaluator, who help us monitor the project’s progress, celebrate our achievements, and point out any areas that need improvement.

Finally, all our work is shared across the nation with our peers who are working on Creative People and Places projects in different locations across the UK. It is a great network to learn from, share with, turn for advice to, and a place to celebrate our local partners and artists.
