Dear Colleagues, due to unforeseen circumstanced the proposed Art Works Conference scheduled for 1st March 2014 has been postponed until the end of March 2014.We will be posting further information shortly about the rescheduled event.
In the meantime can I draw your attention to the forthcoming Birmingham City Council event:
The Cultivating Culture Symposium - Library of Birmingham, March 18th from 12pm – 7pm
The Symposium will be an opportunity for local arts organisations, and all those involved, to meet and share case studies and discuss issues and challenges that have emerged over the past 3 years. It will also be an opportunity for Local Arts Fora & Arts Champions to reflect on how arts development can overcome barriers to participation and engagement.
The Cultivating Culture Symposium is an afternoon of debates and discussions for local people, arts organisations, policy makers and anyone who is interested in developing amazing arts activities at a grass roots level.
The days starts at 12noon with a networking lunch and is kicked off with a Keynote Speech from the Cultural Programmer for Derry Londonderry 2013. There will also be small group discussions and the chance to see performances and presentations of the work done by Birmingham's local Arts Fora and Arts Champions.
Culture on Your Doorstep is a key pillar of the City’s Cultural Strategy and has focused particularly on adult engagement (19+); creation of new work presented to the public; promotion and presentation of arts activities to the public and projects which develop adults as creators, participants, audiences and leaders.
The Arts Champions Scheme has been very successful in fulfilling this area of strategy and case studies from the Scheme will reveal data, models of good practice and clear examples of activities which have been built up over 3 years to leave a legacy with residents in each District – some of whom will be present on the day to present examples of this activity.
