About the project: The Fellowship Inn
Phoenix Community Housing has recently been awarded £4.7 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund to renovate a Grade 2 listed building in Bellingham. The iconic Fellowship Inn is steeped in history having been built for returning soldiers from the First World War. We plan to refurbish the building to create a cinema, restaurant, cafe area and a live music/performance space, as well as making a space that the whole community can enjoy.

Community Activities
Part of our plans involve an array of community activities, such as a community play which will be managed by Greenwich and Lewisham Young Peoples Theatre, an oral history project managed by The Working Party and a heritage tapestry project created by Stitches in Time.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get your pupils involved in one or more of the creative projects linked to the restoration of the Fellowship Inn, which we believe will compliment already existing learning outcomes.

Arts Award
Arts Award inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents: it's creative, valuable and accessible. We are offering bronze, silver and gold training.

Arts Award Impact Study shows that Arts Award has 10 characteristics which maximise its impact.

1.       Reflecting on and shaping own learning
2.       Leadership and peer tutoring
3.       Collaboration
4.       Personalised, independent learning
5.       Applied learning
6.       Accreditation
7.       Portfolio assessment
8.       Diversity of evidence
9.       Learning outside the classroom
10.   Inclusion of non-arts skills

‘The research found advisers, other staff and young people full of praise for certain aspects of the Arts Award qualification which had produced a positive experience for them…Arts Award’s pedagogy is exemplary!’
