Event description

Description

Are you interested in how your organisation can develop new approaches for engaging young people through digital? Join us for an afternoon of insight, discussion and planning. We’ll hear directly from young people about how digital life works for them. We’ll consider the current evidence on digital engagement, hear case studies from arts organisations who are experimenting with digital, and spend some time working together to imagine new ways of working.

This session is for NPOs, members of Local Cultural Education Partnerships, and anyone who’s interested in using digital to engage children and young people in arts and culture.

Whilst those from educational settings are welcome to attend, please be aware that this session will be focussing on arts and cultural organisations engaging with young people outside of school.


Curious Minds is located within the Preston Guild Hall on Lancaster Road, Preston, PR1 1HR, opposite the Town Hall. The office has wheelchair access and is located on the ground floor.

FROM THE TRAIN STATION

The nearest train station is Preston Lancs and it is approximately a 15 minute walk. When you exit from the train station walk straight ahead to the main road, called Fishergate, and turn right. Walk straight down Fishergate for approximately 10 minutes – you will pass a Primark and Debenhams on your right handside and then you know that you are going in the right direction. After approximately 10 minutes you will see a small ‘Subway’ on your left hand side followed by a bar called ‘Baluga Bar’ and a shop called ‘Richer Sounds’ on the corner opposite. Turn left down Lancaster Road and after 2 – 3 minutes you will reach the Guild Hall on your right hand side. Enter the Guild Hall and stay on the ground level and walk towards the back of the building and you’ll find our office on the left hand side by the escalator.

FROM THE BUS STATION

The nearest bus station is Preston Bus Station and it is a 5 minute walk to the Curious Minds office from there. When you arrive at Preston Bus Station take the lift or stairs up to Level One. From there follow the signs to the Guild Hall and you will go across a footbridge that brings you into the Guild Hall. Once you are in the Guild Hall please take the escalator down to the ground floor level and you will see the Curious Minds office on your left hand side.

FROM THE MOTORWAY

The nearest motorway is the M6, which links to the M65 (East Lancashire), the M61 (Manchester) and the M55 (Blackpool). Head for the city centre. The nearest pay and display multi story car park is Preston Bus Station and provides direct pedestrian access to the Guild Hall via the footbridge on Level One. Please note that the car park is cash only and pay on arrival (levels 1-6). Please see the below link for further details, including information about disabled parking spaces and parking prices:
