Do you have a creative idea? How about having a space to host your creative event/project/idea? Then take part in Creative Days, A Shop Window for Talents!
We could provide you with an empty shop for three days in March, so you can turn your idea into reality. All you need to do is just send us your idea.
Creative Days aims to celebrate Havant Borough’s creative talents on the 9th, 10th and 11th March 2012. Empty shops will be unlocked, so creative projects can flourish in Havant’s town centre and Leigh Park. Priority will be given to individuals/groups, who have a link with the Borough (via the workplace or residence…please make that clear in your application).
As we are celebrating Havant Borough’s creativity, all formats will be accepted. Each entry will be allocated 5 minutes in total, so bear that in mind when you send us in your idea! (For example, send a video of maximum 5 minutes or send a written document, which should not take more than 5 minutes to read. These are just a few suggestions. Be creative, this is your time to shine so show us your talent and potential!)
Your idea should be received by post at the latest on the 2nd January 2012. Please send your ideas to:
Havant Borough Council,
Public Service Plaza,
Civic Centre Road,
For more information, contact Havant Borough’s Customer Service on 02392 446 019 or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org before Tuesday 20th December.
