Made possible thanks to a £977,000 grant from National Lottery Heritage Fund’s Kick the Dust programme, Hope Streets is a five year project creating a strategic partnership between heritage and youth sectors in the North West.
Hope Streets has taken groups of young people on an expedition into the past; to delve into the hidden history of their local Hope Street. Through Hope Streets, young people were able to see that local heritage is theirs to own. It has provided a platform for 11-25 year olds from diverse backgrounds to work with heritage organisations, artists and experts to interrogate, agitate and 're-present' their local heritage to produce Festivals of Hope.
Visit the Festival of Hope website to see the work of these incredible young people!
