It’s sometimes difficult to find time in our everyday lives to observe and explore our immediate surroundings; to take in the neighbourhood and reflect on constant changes taking place around us. We feel that the key in developing Medway and Swale as creative places, and involving its residents as active participants in the arts, is to provide an opportunity for people of all backgrounds, ages, abilities and interests to do just that – to lookout, reflect on their observations, work on their ideas and create new approaches to help develop an environment where creativity thrives. Lookout is one of four ‘Out of the Ordinary’ projects supported by Ideas Test, an Arts Council England funded Creative People and Places programme. Read more

Update September 2013:

After over 18 months of working on the CPP Swale and Medway project LV21 stepped down from our role as a consortium member. We continue to deliver the Lookout project as an independent delivery partner only. We are now able to concentrate our attention on the further development of LV21 and our exciting programme of new activities.
