The Light Ships: Engaging village communities

The Light Ships: Engaging village communities

By Transported

SUMMARY

By harnessing the energy of Church Wardens, Transported successfully connected with village communities and developed arts activity that cast churches in a different light.

Transported had been through a long process of consultation in the areas of Boston and South Holland but had not worked with any of the fourteen villages involved. It wanted to complete consultation with all of the villages by beginning a dialogue with the communities about what they might be interested in.

The artist's idea was based around the importance of churches in the community; many people care about churches without necessarily being 'church-goers'.
