How is Market Place Run?

Market Place is an action research project funded by Arts Council England as part of the national Creative People and Places Programme.

This project is delivered by a small team, employed by the Lead Organisation Babylon ARTS.

The Market Place programme, partnerships and strategic aims are supported and steered by a Consortium of Partners.

Communities are key to shaping the programme, that’s why Creative Forums and key individuals help us identify the needs and interests of people in each town.

We also have a Critical Friend and an external 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.
