One billion rising

About The Event

On 14 February each year, in the centre of Preston, we stand together in solidarity to raise awareness of the one billion and rising violent attacks against women and children.” The CCG first brought this event to Lancashire nine years ago and have held it in the centre of the city, here at the university and in the very heart of our community. This year the CCG held the event alongside their partners DanceSyndrome, in their dance studio in Preston. The one billion rising dance routine was again co-ordinated by World Salsa Dance champion Phil Kaila, Salsa Northwest and the video and photographs courtesy of Denise Swanson

About The Organization

Creative Communities Group

Creative Communities Group
The CCG members are all very proud of our philanthropic, voluntary organisation and the contribution that we are making in society and to education by supporting active citizenship, lifelong learning and empowered citizens.
The Creative Communities Group has been doing an amazing job over the last 10 years in connecting the University with our local community, helping to build social capital and collaborative partnerships.
CCG members believe in the power of partnerships and how working together can transform communities and educational institutions.
Working closely with a local community partner can achieve more than can be done alone, as communities can tap into different knowledge sets to generate and expand new understandings of social problems and situations – they alone, know what needs to be achieved in their own backyard, and the CCG listens, advises and supports worthwhile causes without judgement or agenda
