Share this Publication


Author: Katharine Wheeler - The Stove Network

Year: 2020

The Carnegie UK Trust has been supporting the Stove (an artist led community hub and Development Trust in Dumfries) to share their learning about community and town development.

The Trust believes that towns are home to vibrant and innovative communities, and we are working to support towns and regional bodies to develop strategies to improve the wellbeing of their places.

Embers lays out a vision and approach to growing our places as prosperous, sustainable and resilient communities. It examines the role of creativity in effective placemaking, to inspire change and grow local activity and projects that are responsive to local need.
