The Butterfly Effect (Active Arts Castle Vale)

The project will run a range of new activities that require volunteer support including a community picnic, art workshops, sports challenges and a large community event. Local people will be empowered by being involved in the activity design and delivery. They will be supported by a project manager and their skills will be developed through training and mentoring. The aim is to promote the positive impact of doing something for your local community.

The Butterfly Effect title captures the essence of the idea: that by doing something small for your community, from volunteering 1 hour a year or being part of a community event to helping out at weekly activity, that it can have a large positive impact on others, which then helps to transform the place they live.

Active Arts are asking people what would they like to see that benefits the community and how could the people with those ideas help to make it happen and just like a less intense version of Dragon’s Den, people and their ideas will be supported with the resources and mentors to make them a success and thrive beyond the life of the project.
