Royston Road Project Ltd.

Royston Road Project is spearheaded by local people who, have for many years been subject to cutbacks, loss of community/arts/youth workers etc. The catalyst for galvanising local action was in 1998: the demolition of the Townhead Church and threat to the spire. With Bulldozers on site and the body of the church in ruins, sculptor George Wylie joined the protesters in the burning of a "fiery cross"

Artistic intervention and a partnership with Fablevision inspired the community to set up, and now manage, their own company - Royston Road Project: dedicated to arts led community development and with a first project: building two pocket parks. New public spaces at either end of a traditionally factionalised community which would unite the residents, encourage pride and provide training and employment opportunities.
