Northern Soul – We talk to the people who work, rest and play in the North of England and scour the region for interesting stories, histories, ambitions and events.
The Awesome Foundation is a global community advancing the interest of awesome in the universe, £500 at a time.
Each fully autonomous chapter supports awesome projects through micro-grants, usually given out monthly. These micro-grants, £500 or the local equivalent, come out of pockets of the chapter’s “trustees” and are given on a no-strings-attached basis to people and groups working on awesome projects.
My evaluation of the project covers not only whether it was a success but whether I have had influence on the outcomes. Not being born in the Rossendale valley and without the local accent, from a reflexivity point of view, I am an outsider. The fact that I am lurking around the place every other day with a camera does makes me stand out like a sore thumb.
