Arts Council England (National Lottery) have given the go-ahead for MFAA to partner with several private, public and volunteer organisations to run a green landscapes project centred on the 5 green open spaces of Cradley Heath.

Experienced MFAA member Martyn Harris is leading the project that will include multi-media artworks, the spoken/written word, heritage film and music.

Anyone and everyone of all ages and abilities will be able to take part in landscape workshops and follow up studio sessions.

Martryn said, "This project will involve the wider community with people of all ages being able to take part in free landscape workshops and follow up studio sessions held at several partner sites".

24th September 2019:   Arts Council England approved project funding. 

The project is unrivalled across the Black Country and Birmingham in its planned connectivity to engage people and communities from surrounding areas to take part in an integrated programme of artwork. It will deliver real outcomes toward benefitting Cradley Heath's green landscapes community volunteers who give freely of their time to maintain and improve surrounding green open spaces for the benefit of the public.
