We have included an outline budget for our project. This can sometimes be useful when budgeting for further projects.

Please note – we were able to work with many of the same community tutors as Artspace – through the Adult and Community Learning Service at Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council. As a result we were able to pay agreed hourly rates to many freelance artists and workshop leaders (£18.20/hour), rather than full-day rates. There were no additional costs for venue hire during the project.

Our team of freelancers ran creative workshops totalling 218 hours. £4050.00
Community mural – materials £500.00
Three day reminiscence sessions – oral historian fees (day rate), transcription, documentation ready for archival deposit £975.00
Events programme – we included a modest budget to pay for speakers not connected to Dudley MBC, and ran two creative writing workshops, leading to a performance (day rate). £650.00
Design and print – some print was also done in-house. £1900.00
Commission for script writing and production costs of One Boy. One Town.One Big Idea! at Brierley Hill Civic Hall (match-funded by Dudley Performing Arts, and schools bought in services of the dance tutors). £1500.00
Street interviews, filming (2 ½ days) and production of My Brierley Hill film (including content editing fee – 3 days at freelancer hourly rate) £2000.00
Project management – by Outreach Manager at English Heritage as part of core activity £ 0.00
Understanding Brierley Hill  – fee for compilation, design and edit (7 days at freelancer hourly rate) £1020.00


We also had a filming and editing budget to record as many of the creative responses as possible (drama, dance, live performance). We also filmed many  of the workshops to capture the processes and methodologies for the Community Engagement Toolkit part of this blog.


 The Project was funded by English Heritage and led by the Outreach Team (Outreach was disbanded March 2011)
