AN exciting sequel to a borough art project will be starting in May with opportunities for families and residents of all ages to get involved.

The Scour II project will run from May until November with various workshops, art walks and two video projection based events in Arrow Valley Countryside Park.

The project aims to encourage visitors to rediscover this part of the town and make connections between the history of the Abbey, needle industry and the structures of the New Town, as well as improving under-used areas.

Three years after the original Scour project in 2016, renowned artists Elizabeth Turner and Keith Ashford are returning to Redditch for “Scour II: The Museum in the Landscape” thanks to funding from Arts Council England, Redditch Borough Council, Arts in Redditch, Midcounties Co-op and The Elmley Foundation.

The project has just received £22,400 grant funding from Arts Council England.
