People Going Places

People Going Places is a small-scale commissions programme for people who live and work in Barking and Dagenham, which is designed to strengthen the local arts sector and expand the range of creative activities available in the borough. 

Its objectives are:

  • To increase the number of voluntary arts groups operating in the borough
  • To enable greater numbers of people to volunteer for local arts organisations and support local arts activities
  • To increase the reach and membership of existing voluntary/amateur and professional arts groups and organisations
  • To support the professional development of local artists and arts organisations
  • To enable a more connected local arts sector and encourage new partnerships to be formed – within and across the subsidised, amateur and commercial sectors
  • To increase the numbers of venues in the borough hosting high quality arts activities
  • To increase the numbers of local artists and arts organisations accessing external funding
