Overarching Social Action

One of the requirements of the #iwill funding programme is that there is a strong social action thread to what is done. In our KMG project each workshop will, we intend, have a social action purpose, angle or content. There should be 20+workshops during the year each with such a dimension.

However, it was thought a good idea for these social action “jigsaw” pieces to fit an overarching theme.

Aiming high with our Whitby community as the target.
