Team and Partners
Over the years since then, hundreds of local people have
been involved as well as
scores of community groups and individuals. Royston Road Project
(in partnership withFablevision)
has raised £1.5million pounds of Scottish Arts Council,
Lottery Community Fund, Local Authority, European Regional
Development and Trust fund money to create, manage and deliver
The Royston Road Project Board of directors has worked with
artists (commissioned byThe
Centre), architects and arts led community development
professionals; has brought together Education, Social Work,
Housing Associations, the City Council (Land Services, Regeneration
Unit, Culture and Leisure Services) Churches, The Police,
Community Councils, Youth Groups, Glasgow Building Preservation
Trust, the Spire and Park Project and the Rosemount Trust
as well as an extensive Wise Group training for work programme.
It is now accepted that arts projects have a major role to
play in the social and economic regeneration of an area -
particularly when linked to housing renewal, the development
of public space and consultative community development. Royston
Road Project is an excellent example of using joined
up thinking to tackle social problems.
Finally, it is part of the strategic plan of Royston Road
Ltd that the community parks project is not a one
off. Rather, Royston Road Project will continue in
the future to act as a vehicle for generating of arts and
environmental projects for the whole area - raising the profile
of the Royston Corridor and increasing the capacity of the
community to achieve direct, powerful, regenerative results.
