Cheshire West Community and Voluntary Arts Awards

9 April 2019

Cheshire West and Chester Council is supporting Cheshire West Voluntary Arts Network to run the fifth arts award event to recognise and celebrate the work many groups do using arts in their local communities.

The unsung heroes and community groups who enable people of all ages to participate in a wide range of arts activities will be honoured at a special awards evening at Chester Town Hall on 27 June.  All nominees will be invited to attend this celebration.

If you are a group, or know of a group or individual then now is the time to send in a nomination in the following categories.

The categories:
  • Children and Youth Arts (groups or projects that include those aged 18 and under in any art form)
  • Performing Arts (includes theatre, dance, new writing and live performance)
  • Visual Arts (includes all forms of art, craft, photography, digital and new media)
  • Music (includes but not limited to classical, choral, popular, DJ/VJ)
  • Outstanding Contribution (a special award to a group or individual)
  • Unsung Hero (that person who is always working away in the background, continuously supporting a group / project)
Lisa Harris, Director of Places Strategy, Cheshire West and Chester Council said: "Cheshire West Voluntary Arts Network supports and promotes voluntary arts groups across west Cheshire.  There are more than 150 organisations creating opportunities for people of all ages and walks of life to participate in music, song, dance, art, theatre and much more.

"These awards are a thank you from the thousands of local people across the Borough in Chester, Ellesmere Port, Northwich, Winsford and our rural areas that take part, learning new skills, gaining confidence, enhancing their life opportunities and making new friends."
