Abstract or description

The Portland Inn Project, an artist and community led organisation based in Stoke-on-Trent, led by artists Anna Francis and Rebecca Davies have worked with the community of a neighbourhood in Stoke-on-Trent where the project is based, to write a One Hundred Year Plan for the area.

The creative and participatory process to write the plan involved leading a series of projects, workshops and activities, which have been documented on a website. The website is designed to document the process, and act as a resource for other arts and community based organisations to begin the process of planning long term.

The Website is a resource for other communities and cultural workers to use in the process of developing of their own long term plans.

About the project (Text from Website):

What is a 100 year plan?
Across arts and community sectors, the way that activity and development is funded is often in short term projects. It is widely acknowledged that this can lead to a lack of opportunity to plan long term, and often results in a lack of resource and opportunity to make lasting change. For a community to embark on putting together a 100 year plan, each smaller, short term project can be viewed as part of a wider landscape plan.

The 100 year plan borrows from landscape architecture and design thinking to empower communities, funders and policy makers to resist short term project based thinking, and to begin to think more holistically and sustainably, longer term, which can have significant benefits, socially, politically and environmentally.

Change and development, just like the making of a garden, happens over time. A 100 year plan can be a physical and geographical plan for a community landscape but it works just as well as a concept of change over time.

The writing of a 100 year plan is an idea that other communities can pick up and use too.

A film was made with award winning Film Makers Junction 15, to share the project to a wider audience.
