£4,250 towards the Spring Heeled Jack project.
Hope Street Ltd focuses its support on communities in Everton that have become fragmented and excluded from opportunities. The Spring Heeled Jack project comprised a carnival in Everton Park and a community-curated exhibition at the National Museum in Liverpool. Spring Heeled Jack was a local legend and generations of Evertonians were reared on tales of this famous bogeyman. The project aimed to rekindle the traditions of storytelling within the community through workshops, street theatre, comedy, puppetry and blogs by the residents in Everton.
