Invigorate!

Reimagine your street as you’ve never seen it before.

Do you live in Luton or Lordswood in Chatham, or Milton Regis in Sittingbourne?

Have you got a creative idea that could improve people’s lives in your area?

An example of this could be:

  • Outdoor cinema in the park
  • Light projection on the church
  • Live music in the garden
  • Animation about your family
  • Sound trail around the shops
  • Storytelling in the salon
  • Something else?

We’re working on Invigorate! a brand new project that will give you the power to create arts events in your neighbourhood.
