North East Regional Arts Award Conference 2017- Step Up To Arts Award
Who? For individuals working in cultural organisations. Can you drive organisational change to embed Arts Award across your programmes? We are keen that staff from NPOs, MPMs, Music Hubs and libraries attend.
What? This year we are asking you ‘Step Up to Arts Award'. Invest your time and expertise to look again at your offer and ask ‘what is the Arts Award fit’? Arts Awards priority level is increasing year on year. The conference is about sharing ways your organisation can deliver increasing numbers and levels of Arts Award. We will also consider what this investment in your young people will bring to your organisation.
How? In the morning we will hear from Jane Beardsworth from Arts Council. Jane is the lead for Arts Council Goal 5/CYP work across the North and will talk about the importance of Arts Award. We will hear direct from Trinity College about Arts Award and employability, and from organisations new to successfully delivering Arts Award.
During lunch we are inviting you to look at a range of Arts Award portfolios. We also hope you will use this as an networking opportunity.
In the afternoon delegates can choose two sessions from the following options:
Festivals and Arts Award: Hear how organisations’ are delivering Arts Award linked to regional and national festivals.
Compact Arts Award Delivery Models: Could you deliver Discover Arts Award in a Day? Or could you complete an Arts Award Weekend, Summer School or Academy?
Delivering Arts Award Together: Look at smart partnerships with organisations delivering Arts Award together.
Panel members are drawn from the ‘We Are Ten’ and ‘Arts Award Peer Mentoring’ programmes and ‘Festivals’ and ‘Discover in a Day’ Pilots. They will be confirmed nearer the date.
The North East Arts Award Conference 2017 is delivered on behalf of Culture Bridge North East by the Learning and Participation at The Customs House.
