Culture Makers

Culture Makers is a crew of local residents who are coming together to help make Weston an even better place to live, work and visit.

About Culture Makers

The team encourages people who can spare a few hours at a one-off event or would like to help out at larger events, such as town-centred festivals. There is something for everyone to be involved in. In the past couple of years, Culture Makers have made their friendly and positive mark on events as diverse as GLOW festival in Grove Park, Whirligig outdoor arts festival on Italian Gardens, Good Grief Festival with University of Bristol (all over town!), Party on the Green in Bournville Park and and our annual Arts + Health Festival with NHS. Culture Makers help out at dance shows, performances on SUPER WONDER SHRINE and walking tours. The possibilities are many!

We offer opportunities in working with the public, with artists and always welcoming those with some technical knowledge to support in the production of our events. If you have another idea where you could help out, let us know.

We have offered training in being a tour guide, becoming a Dementia Friend and First Aid.

Whether you want to make new social connections (or build upon existing ones), enhance your skill base or you simply thrive on supporting your local community, Culture Makers invites residents to get in touch to make this happen.
