Creative West End Winter Market

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesOther


On the weekend of 4th and 5th of December, we came together for our last two workshops. During the previous weeks, the Growing Together team worked very hard to co-develop two prototypes of the Wellbeing Barometer informed by the selected concepts developed by the micro-gardeners in our last workshop, the 31st of October.

On Saturday we run a stall at the Creative West End Christmas Market at More Music in Morecambe in partnership with the New Frontiers who invited us to cooperate and join efforts! At the stall, we had engagement activities and introduced the Growing Together project. The Christmas Market, hosted by More Music, gave us another magnificent opportunity to test the third iteration of the Wellbeing Barometer tool. The Market is actually is one of the most important creative events in the region and brought together a large number of social enterprises and arty and craftsman local businesses such as The Good Things Collective (our principal partner in the micro-garden project), DIY Printing, AI Alvarez/ Nib Crib, Relic, M&M Treasres, Quantum games, Give, Eden Project, Tarnia artwork, the restore, seaside stitches, and the Council Community Hub, among others. Despite the horrible weather, the event attracted many local people and also visitors from the region, just over 100 people.
