Window Wanderland Area Champions Sought

BarrowFull, one of Barrow’s many successful creative organisations, are seeking
local people to help create a festival of light and colour across the town.

Window Wanderland will take place in Ormsgill, Hindpool, Barrow Central, Risedale,
Barrow Island and Walney in March 2023. Area Champions are needed now to help
spread the word about the project and assist BarrowFull in designing an event that
includes everyone in each community, with the idea that as many people as possible
get involved.

People who love sharing events via social media, putting up posters in shops and
community centres and making events happen on a local level are encouraged to
take part and become Area Champions, helping to spread the word locally in the
streets where they live. BarrowFull Producer Kathrin Bonnar She says “I hope that
this project will spread joy around Barrow. Becoming an Area Champion will be a
great way to feel part of the Barrow community over the next few months, learning
how we can support each other, finding strength in friendships and having fun being
creative in our homes”.
BarrowFull, one of Barrow’s successful arts and culture organisations and a key
player in the Arts Council’s UK-wide flagship programme Creative People and
Places, will be working with national organisation Window Wanderland to help
enable this to take place in Barrow. They are a not-for-profit organisation dedicated
to reducing social isolation and fostering a sense of community. With no expectation
of creative or artistic expertise, and no one judging anyone’s efforts, people who
have been involved in other places have found it inspiring: “Being part of the Window
Wanderland community has been an amazing experience for me. I was
overwhelmed by the positivity, support and local appetite to get involved.”

Anyone interested in helping with the project can contact BarrowFull producer who will be able to answer questions and provide
