The Evaluator is delighted to be working on a new project, Healing Arts for All (HAFA) from Community Arts by ZK.
This project is place focused and based in Pendle, on our doorstep!
HAFA describes itself as a “3-year people powered art and heritage project”, funded jointly by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. The project will include participants working with professional artists as well as gaining an understanding of working within heritage. Heritage will focus on understanding the history and impact of Pendle’s Brierfield Mill, an iconic grade II listed former cotton mill built in 1931. This mill originally attracted the South Asian community to move to the area to work in the textile industry.

We are particularly looking forward to evaluating the personal impact that this project, blending creativity and heritage, has on the participants from the South Asian community.
