Nominate a Community Codebreaker
Do you know someone doing incredible work in your community?
We need your help to shape a dynamic new public art project for Bletchley. Codes were broken by a remarkable network of collective talent and ingenuity and we want to celebrate the Bletchley Park and Alan Turing legacies in a fresh, creative and inclusive way.
We are on the lookout for a collective of ‘Community Codebreakers’ to support the development of a brief for this future facing, innovative public celebration.
How do I nominate?
To nominate someone brilliant (it can be yourself!) please fill in this simple form.
What is a Community Codebreaker?
A Community Codebreaker is someone making a difference in your community - for example this could be your neighbourhood, street, school, workplace, voluntary sports team or favourite local shop.
Brilliance and innovation come in many different forms and are found in all corners of a town. If you know someone doing transformative work to support people and champion Bletchley’s diverse communities - from education to sport, science to mental health, cooking and more - nominate them!
You can nominate yourself, or someone you know. They must live, work, study or volunteer in Bletchley or the MK1, MK2 and MK3 postcodes. Under 18’s who are nominating or being nominated must have the consent and involvement of their parent or carer.
If you want to find out more, you can join an informal online meeting on Wednesday 7 December 2022 at 5pm, email email@example.com for the video link.
If you have any questions about the process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
What will they do?
The selected Community Codebreakers will be part of a small group who will work together to develop a future facing public art commission brief for Bletchley.
Chosen Codebreakers should be available for a short online briefing on 10 January 2023, and a daytime workshop on 16 January 2023 at Bletchley Library to share ideas and thoughts, supported by a team of artists. There are no special skills or artistic knowledge required, this is about your local connection and stories.
This is a great opportunity to gain new skills, meet new people and help us share Bletchley’s internationally significant story with the world - while keeping it rooted to the community and the people who live, work and study here today.
Those selected will be paid the National Living Wage for their time, and will receive a free annual pass for Bletchley Park. Simple lunch and refreshments will be provided at Enigma Day. Access support can be provided.
Nominations close at 5:00pm on Tuesday 2 January 2023.
Selected Community Codebreakers will be notified by 6 January 2023
