Junction Arts are delighted to be involved with the Point of View project (POV). It is  a joint venture between nine organisations, including Bassetlaw Community and Voluntary Service, in collaboration with Bassetlaw Action Centre, Centre Place, Inspire, Mansfield CVS, Rhubarb Farm, South Yorkshire’s Community Foundation and Voluntary Action Doncaster, which spans across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire.  The project has been awarded £220,000 by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sports, delivered by Arts Council England.

The POV project aims to build new, strong and lasting relationships between Arts organisations and the wider voluntary community and social enterprise sector and will affect change by putting the voice and ‘Point of View’ of young people at the centre of all POV activities. Working together, the POV project partnership will facilitate and amplify the voices of young people and develop 5 test and learn pilot projects and over 100 new volunteer opportunities.

Through our involvement in this project, we are delivering the Next Gen initiative. To find out more about the project please visit

‘We are delighted to be a partner in the POV project. We are excited to work with young people to co-design new routes into volunteering in the arts whilst providing a much-needed platform for young people to expressthemselves.’ – Paul Steele, Managing Director of Junction Arts.
