About Market Place
What is Market Place?
Market Place has people at its heart. It’s about more people creating and experiencing great art in Fenland and Forest Heath.
Market Place, a Creative People and Places project, has been running in Fenland and Forest Heath since 2015, making connections with local communities in the seven market towns of Brandon, Chatteris, March, Mildenhall, Newmarket, Whittlesey and Wisbech.
Phase Two of the project will run from 2018 – 2021 and carry on the creative conversations that happened under Phase One, offering support for artists and creative practitioners in the areas, encouraging local people to get involved with decisions about what great arts, culture and creative activities can happen where they live, sometimes in unexpected places!
Phase One of the project ran between 2015 to October 2018, and during this time we got to know people across the seven towns. We worked with artists and creative practitioners across the area to collaborate on and enjoy great arts events and activities with local communities. These videos show some of what we got up to over the summer:
