Arts trail engagement with local residents & businesses

18 June 2021

Made to Measure call out

Please respond by 18th June 2021- Residents of West Penwith are invited to be part of a new artwork for Mount’s Bay to imagine the submerged forest that sits beneath the sea. A series of seeing sticks are being created for the Penzance-Marazion coast path, where you can rest and imagine the forest. The artist is inviting local residents to send their individual measurements, which will be used to inform the size of the seeing sticks – ensuring they are tailor made to the local community. Take part here.

Business Training

Following the business skills survey results, we plan to offer training on cycle tourism, sustainability, digital marketing and business collaboration. However we know many SMEs are time poor, so we are reviewing the medium to deliver this and considering to offer online toolkits that may make the content more easily accessed. We would love to hear from you. Take this short survey to input your thoughts on the best approach moving forward.
