Right Up Our Street
Right Up Our Street’s mission is to provide a programme which is a successful combination of the imagination and inspiration of the artists, and the understanding and aspiration of Doncaster’s local communities. In simple terms, we need to create great pieces of art that people in Doncaster want to engage with.
We will make sure community led decision-making is central to all we do in the following ways:
Transparency: Everyone involved in Right Up Our Street has trust and confidence in the programme and the way in which it operates.
Representation: We’ve consciously aimed to avoid complication when designing our decision-making process, and promise that communities and artists are fairly represented.
Dialogue: Communication is at the heart of our decision-making and fundamental to the programme, ensuring no barriers exist, and empowering a collective voice which will be listened to.
