We’ve put an entry into this year’s Aviva Community Fund competition – in the £5,000-£10,000 project category. If successful, it would fund:
- A year of free women and girls’ skate sessions at both Flo (Nottingham) and The House (Sheffield) indoor skateparks;
- Development of skate courses for young people with special educational needs, including Asperger’s and autism, learning from A-Skate in the US; and
- Several #skateandcreate projects where young skaters in Nottingham work with artists, designers, trades and craftspeople to build skateable installations that can be moved around the city – energising unloved parts of Nottingham and enabling skaters to learn specialist creative and practical skills and wider employability and enterprise skills – think Side Effects of Urethane and the Malmo ‘Real Street’ installations.
Deadline for voting is 21st November; you get 10 votes, so can vote for ours and other projects that inspire you; and we need at least 1,000 votes to progress to the next stage – please vote and help us invest in skateboarders not just skateparks!
