always talks about 'shining a light on' local community-led creativity (not creating or leading it). We agree w Robin Simpson about need for creativity in ALL communities to be recognised.

Replying to @etankm
young people, old people, people who've never been allowed to lead before, people who never believed they could lead before - ALL of these are welcome (and supported) to lead

To the person who asked me what makes the campaign particularly inclusive : community is the subject of the FPs campaign, defined in the active case (by and with) as opposed to it being the object of the campaign, defined in the passive case (about).
