CanWE: transform Walsall into a world leading place to live; a space of creativity & innovation - building power with people through making and experimentation.
It’s time to invest in Walsall; a town that has for too long been neglected, lacked the infrastructure and leadership to support its diverse and growing communities. We are starting by dedicating the next decade to kick-start Walsall’s transformation; aiming to shift its narrative as a place of degradation and social divide, into a thriving place to live for all.
This phase of funding will supply 5% of our £500,000 investment target; helping to create a central node for communities living here, to reshape their town. With this £25,000 our team will:
+ Secure the 6000 sq ft, listed property on Walsall’s civic centre on the High Street for community use.
+ Support the co-design & architecture process to transform the space into a vivid community asset.
+ Kickstart our community-led initiatives supporting local groups to experiment by distributing micro grants
