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.
