Big Lottery Funding Success for Cartwheel Arts

Tell Us Another One, the community creative writing programme devised and run by Heywood based charity Cartwheel Arts, has been awarded £324,141 over 3 years from Big Lottery Fund’s ‘Reaching Communities’ programme. The award will enable the continuation of the project to a further three year adventure in creative writing with diverse communities.

The Big Lottery funding will enable Tell Us Another One to continue to support monthly creative writing groups for adults in six low income communities around three boroughs: Rochdale, Bury and Oldham, as well as establishing three new groups. These groups are free and accessible to all members of the community and are facilitated by Cartwheel staff and experienced professional writers.

Alongside the regular writing workshops Tell Us Another One will continue to produce high quality publications including the quarterly magazine Scribble, and also the wonderful Scribble festival which will include performances form participants and contributions from some of the UK's best and freshest talent.

The new funding will also help the organisation to develop a programme of work with older people, aimed to bridge the 'digital divide' to give older members of the community greater confidence with technology. There will also be a new strand of work with young people aimed at setting up young writers groups in each borough. Over 1,000 people in Rochdale, Oldham and Bury will benefit from the grassroots programme over the three years. Partnerships with organisations such as Petrus in Rochdale, Bright Books, the Rochdale Literature and Ideas festival the many community champions in the boroughs we work in will only serve to help us to create some greatly diverse and highly impactful work.

New coordinator Danny Fahey is delighted to take post on the project. With his own background steeped in lyrical creation, and an active member of Manchester's music performance and nightlife scene, he has said: "I am loving working on the project and have so far met such a wide range of professionals and participants in the area. I'm hoping to learn a lot and also bring some freshness and vibrancy to things here."
