This work can sometimes be overlooked, which is where BIG UP steps in and plugs in the amp.
In building networks between creatives, social change-makers and audiences, the aim is to make the voices of change too loud to ignore.
This is not just a one-off event, but the culmination of months of meaningful development and community building, with regeneration, resilience and resurgence at its core.
