Various 'bitesize' examples

Granby Four Streets was the result of a 20-year battle by local residents to save a series of terrace housing from demolition. Forming the Granby Four Streets Community Land Trust, the residents hired multi-disciplinary collective Assemble to devise a vision for the area, which could bring the empty homes back into use as affordable housing.

There are several examples nationwide where housing associations partner with arts organisations on targeted interventions in the places where people live.   For example, Barnsley Homes worked in partnership with Creative Recovery on ‘Lets Blow Out the Blues Together!’ to help tackle social isolation and mental health.  Cherwell Theatre Company is running a pilot project, supported by Sanctuary Housing to equip young people in Banbury to deal with negative and harmful attitudes and behaviours towards women.
