As part of Great Place: Lakes and Dales, 64 Million Artists are running a professional development training programme for cultural organisations based in the area; 'A Future for Culture'.

This training will be rooted in the concept of Cultural Democracy, more information of which can be found in the report published in September 2018, ‘Cultural Democracy in Practice’. This training is the first of its kind and organisations in the Lakes and Dales have the opportunity to lead the way.

The CPD will begin with a Future-Scoping event on 16th May 2019 (10am - 4pm) which will include:

- Understanding the needs of organisations
- Mapping the current picture for young people in the local area
- Introduction to Cultural Democracy
- Understanding the barriers to working in this way
- Early co-design of programme

A vegetarian lunch will be included, please let us know when you register if you have any other dietry requirements.

The event will take place at Dalesbridge, Austwick (near Settle), if you have any specific acceess requirements, including travelling to the venue, please let us know when you register and we will be in touch to make arrangements.

This Future-Scoping event will be followed by a co-designed development programme of Future-Proofing for all attending organisations, this means you will be involved in how the training is shaped so that it meet the needs of your organisation.

The main programme will take place over 6-9 months (exact dates to be decided collectively but will before end of March 2020) and will consist of:

  • Workshops
  • Peer mentoring
  • Remote coaching
  • Action learning

Due to the nature of this training and development programme, places are limited and by attending the initial Future-Scoping event you are committing to taking part in the whole programme. This will involve making changes within your organisation, so we ask that the person who attends the training programme is someone who is able to action change, ideally part of the management team.
