The Project

‘Folded’ is a space to share, connect and uplift – created by and for young people in Kendal and the South Lakes.

It was started out of a desire to create a collaborative and creative collective between young people in the South Lakes – an area rich with cultural importance, yet one that almost completely excludes young people. The idea behind Folded is to show the work of, and build a community of, writers, artists, actors, musicians and makers alike. We think it’s time the mic was passed to the creators of the rural north.

Folded is a strand of The FOLD, a project which uses co-design principles with an aim to encourage participation, empower, share knowledge and build collaborations.

The FOLD is made possible by commissioning from Great Place Lakes and Dales ‘one of 16 national schemes placing art, heritage and culture at the heart of our future and at the centre of the Grasmere – Skipton corridor’.
