Event description
The 4th Creative People and Places Conference will take place online from 7 - 9 December, exploring the themes of People Place Power.

About this event

The People Place Power conference is a meeting place for everyone interested in shifting approaches in inclusive arts and cultural engagement.

Through a series of lively provocations, rich conversations, practical workshops and creative elements we will explore and challenge thinking; encourage critical reflection; and share learning on the themes of power, collaboration, co-creation, ownership, relevance and place.

People Place Power participants and contributors will include leading figures from within and beyond the arts and cultural sector, artists, as well as Creative People and Places participants and leaders.

Who is it for?

● Cultural and community organisations interested in broadening engagement and involving communities in their work

● Artists and producers interested in socially engaged and inclusive practice

● People working for and with Creative People and Places and related projects

● People working in the public sector including local authorities and health service providers

● Funders, policy-makers and academics interested in arts engagement

● Experience Creative People and Places from the inside through practical, artist-led workshops

● Build relationships with like-minded people and develop new networks

● Expose yourself to new ideas, new ways of working, and potential partners for future collaboration

Ticket prices

The conference is part-subsidised by Arts Council England but we do need to charge for tickets to balance the budget. The majority of our costs are for the programme, all artists and freelancers are paid a fee for presenting and we are grateful to the organisations who are providing their time in-kind.

We know how much the pandemic has affected the cultural sector, particularly freelancers and have a range of ticket prices available to try to make the event as accessible as possible. As part of the ticket options we have included a ‘pay what you can afford’ option for artists and freelancers - with suggested donations.

Each ticket gives 1 person full access to all conference activity throughout the conference and for a week after the event.

• Employees of public sector, academic institutions and for profit enterprises - £100

• Employees of creative and cultural not for profit organisations - £80

• Artists / Freelancers/ Individuals full price - £36

• ‘Pay what you can afford' option for Individuals. Suggested donations: £25 - contributes to the programme costs; £10 - covers the event platform and contributes to access costs to support everyone in attending; £6 - covers the cost of the event platform.

(Eventbrite processing costs are included in the price.)

If you are from an organisation that may struggle to support your attendance please get in touch and we can look at options.
