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.

The Whitaker – An Ethnological project

ian clegg photographyThe Whitaker Gallery and Museum, having recently been rescued from closure by three dedicated people, has been my focus of attention for the last couple of months.

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.
