Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Informal twice annual get-together for representatives of groups or individuals that organise visual art events and exhibitions to exchange information and raise issues that affect art in Norwich and Norfolk.

Wednesday 26 July 1-3pm at the Shoe Factory Social Club in St Mary's Works on St Mary's Plain just off Duke Street (to the left).

As well as general updates from people around the table, we will also have Genine Sumner from Start East to tell you about the new scheme for business development support and funding for cultural entrepreneurs in Norfolk and Suffolk. She will tell you all about StartEast and can sign you up to benefit from this free programme of support, funded by ACE and the European Union. And James Gorry from Spring to talk about the Cultural Calendar and cultural tourism

I will also try and get someone from Architekton (the developers who own St George's Works and St Mary's Works) to tell us about the St Mary's and St George's sites, what plans they have and how they are supporting creatives whilst developing their plans

And we will have some discussions about the availability of exhibition and studio space in the city as we are facing something of a crisis at the moment with the Anglia Square Development on the horizon and changes at The Forum.

Please send one or two people from your organisation or group. Attendance is not restricted but we prefer to keep the group size manageable. Please get in touch if you want to come and don't know if you are eligible by emailing info@theshiftnorwich.org.uk

The Shoe Factory Social Club is a basic space that is often used for events and exhibitions. It is a former shoe factory awaiting development and is offered for use by artists by developers Architekton.

ps Please feel free to bring your lunch! There's a cafe at the corner of Muspole Street and Duke Street
