Come and join in for mural project at Denver Sluice – free and fun

logosA new mural is being created at Denver Sluice Complex this week – come and join in. It is free for all to help out.

Come and tell us what you think we should include in the mural and then create your artwork with the help of ADeC and its appointed artist, Carolyn Ash. See the mural develop as people are working on it this week – what is your opinion of and relationship with your local  environment? What is special about the Denver Sluice and its surrounding countryside?

The end-result will be visible for all at Denver Sluice – so, come and make sure you can show off your part of the mural to your friends and family later down the line.

See below for the times this week you can come and join in: every day until Saturday this week:

About markatousewasheslps

I am currently coordinating a partnership-led bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund (for a circa £600K Heritage Grant bid) focusing on strengthening the unique yet vulnerable natural heritage in the Cambridgeshire Fens surrounding the Old west River, the new 'New Life on the Old West' project. Until recently I was the Programme Manager for the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership scheme, leading on the 1-year development and 3-year delivery phases of the Heritage Lottery Fund grant-aided Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership (OWLP) scheme (from Dec 2012 until March 2017), on behalf of and in close cooperation with a wide range of local, regional and national partner organisations. The Ouse Washes LP's portfolio of 51 projects have focused on: conservation works to historic and natural environmental assets; improving community participation & engagement with the landscape and its heritage; increasing access and learning opportunities; and providing more opportunities for training in traditional land management skills. The overall aim has been to leave a long-term legacy for this fascinating and unique landscape, in the process creating tangible improvements to social, economic and environmental aspects of this landscape, its heritage and communities.
