About Popular Projects

Popular Projects is a three-stranded series of events funded by the Big Lottery Fund with the aim of improving the social lives and mental and physical wellbeing of our local community.

Spearheaded by local artist and community practitioner, Madhumita Bose, Popular Projects features an array of community workshops and activities for all ages and backgrounds. All of the sessions are participant led; attendees democratically vote for what activity would serve them best encouraging confidence, participation and providing much needed tailor made services to the people who matter most – our community!
