This year we are launching Jaw Jaw, a new health and wellbeing initiative that will extend the reach of our events into the homes of the isolated or lonely in our rural communities. Working with health and social care partners, we will be testing how to extend the joy that Villages in Action brings into homes using technology and online tools.
Our Heritage Lottery Fund-supported project, UNEARTH, will run from 2017 to 2019 and will enable researchers in 8 Devon villages to discover the vibrancy of their local history, resulting in 8 multi-media performances inspired by the research.
We supported young promoter groups to engage with the ‘behind the scenes’ world of village based music, dance and theatre performances.
Villages in Action in partnership with the Devon Guild of Craftsmen supported a parallel project to the Outline South West project called Postcards from the Path.
ENHANCE brought Villages in Action voluntary promoters together to improve their promoting skills.
Jurassic Journey – a collaborative project that explored the Jurassic Coast through the contrasting viewpoints of four artists.
