I was so pleasantly surprised that Tony Nero, a Peterborough artist, nominated me for the service Peterborough Art House Ltd provided to him as an emerging artists. The artists I gave an exhibition space are quite numerous but Tony Nero, still successfully painting many commissions, has been the only one to acknowledge it. Thank you Tony.

Who do you think are the people, ideas, groups and places that contribute most to our city’s culture? Creative Peterborough, the city’s largest arts network, want to know. In the spirit of the London 2012 the public are invited to nominate the individuals and organisations who are making the most difference to Peterborough’s growing arts scene. Nominations start from Thursday 26th July, with a top twenty being announced, and being rewarded with their own Olympic Torch, crafted by Peterborough artist Anne Bellamy, on 26th August.
You can nominate anyone, or place, that you think supports the arts in Peterborough. As Keely Mills, one of the project’s organisers explained “We are interested in all nominations, from painters to theatre companies, bands to sponsors, voluntary arts organisations to reviewers. Creative Peterborough has been funding projects and building relationships with many people and groups in the city, but we know there are more out there, and we want to celebrate them. We hope, as the country celebrates it’s Olympic heroes, Peterborough will be honour it’s local arts heroes. ”
Do you want to celebrate Mark Grist, poet and YouTube sensation, who opened his set at the Latitude Festival with a poem praising Peterborough? Or Perkins Engineering for sponsoring the Arts Festival? Or maybe you know of an unsung cultural hero for Peterborough?
Nominations can be made here on Facebook, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with a name and a brief explanation of the impact your nominee has had. All nominations will be posted on the Creative Peterborough Facebook page so everyone can add their comments.
