Grow Wild is awarding £500 to young people aged 12–25 to lead projects that will raise awareness about the importance of UK native wild flowers and plants.
Grow Wild are looking for talented and imaginative young people aged 12 – 25 to raise awareness about the importance of UK native wild flowers and plants by using visual art, music, poetry, dance, theatre… whatever it is that you’re good at!
They’ll be showcasing all of the Get Creative projects at a weekend takeover event in Edinburgh. This will take place at the Summerhall arts centre on 23 – 25 June 2017, and will be an opportunity to present or perform at an iconic arts venue.
Grow Wild will pay for travel and accommodation costs in addition to the £500 grant.
Transform a Space
Grow Wild are also looking for young people aged 12-25 who have a brilliant idea for transforming a communal space with native wild flowers and plants in their local area.
Does somewhere come to mind? Great!
And to spread the wild flower love, projects should involve another group of people in your local area. This group should be a different age to you and your friends, such as a local primary school, residents group or community project. Think about who you already know or any new groups you’d like to get involved. Could you transform a small area that would really make a difference in people’s lives?
Your project can involve more than sowing and growing – be as creative as you like. Think wild, innovative and eye catching!
