It is very cold this morning, but a warm glow is close at hand. Most readers of this blog won’t need telling about the benefits the arts bring to people in Nottingham. But if you like some university certified evidence, Nottingham Uni has a whole set of Arts and Community Cohesion Case Studies, complete with details of the projects, the activities and the achievements. As well as making you feel good, you might pick up some ideas, and if you are in that game, tips for completing grant application forms.
Speaking of Community, have you looked at our own Community Site? You can publish your own announcements simply by emailing your text, photo, video or document to email@example.com. We check the queue daily and once approved, it will be approved and turned into a web page.
And it will automatically be tweeted, like the posts to this blog, and thus join our third community www.twitter.com/creativenotts. We also re-tweet interesting items from the Nottingham creative and interesting tweeters we follow.
Community Spirit, as the image says – just wish it was as warm here as it was in Adelaide when the photo was taken.
