March 2018: Heritage Lottery Fund, Great Place Scheme (Wales) pilot: Barry-making waves
Barry-making waves is one of five projects in Wales which has been awarded funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund to take part in a pilot scheme for the period 2018-2021:
Barry-making waves is lead by the Vale of Glamorgan Council in partnership with Barry Town Council and Memo Arts Centre. Three work streams will provide the focus for the delivery of the Barry - making waves programme of activities.
Work stream 1: Partnerships and good governance - this will feature the appointment of a Place Manager for Barry to lead the development and implementation of the project; and, the establishment of a Place Board (drawn from a broad spectrum of the place community) to support and champion the changes necessary during this process and ensure that the work of continually managing and developing the place is driven forwards.
Work stream 2: Embedding Heritage and Culture in long term plans and activities for Barry - this will include the development, design and publication of two strategic documents; the Barry Story book, an informative and inspiring document that relates to the new story of Barry intended for stakeholders; and, the Barry Design Toolkit to enable partners and stakeholders to use the brand proposition in their activities.
Work stream 3: Building Social Capital - will concentrate on three activities, the establishment of a Community Volunteers Bank; the delivery of a Digital Place Making project; and, a Marketing and Outreach programme. All of the above actions are mutually reinforcing and align positively with the Activities and Outcomes described in the Heritage Lottery Fund Great Place Scheme guidance.
