Event description
St Helens Arts Groups – Arts In Libraries Consultation.

About this Event

Cultural Hubs is an exciting arts in libraries, Arts Council funded project that allows us to programme a fantastic range of cultural activities and events into St Helens Libraries.

Since we began we have been developing arts projects with local, national and international artists and arts groups. One of the things we have been keen to explore during this time is how we work with local arts groups to showcase work in St Helens Libraries.

One of the ways we have done that is to offer small grants to St Helens based Arts Groups, but the take up for this has not always resulted in the number of applications we have expected.

In 2018/2019 we teamed up with Heart Of Glass to offer grants of £1,500, however we only received 3 applications for this funding.

We would like to explore how we can more closely work with the local arts sector and understand what your needs are.

We would like to invite you to attend a special meeting at Parr Library on Monday 9th September, 6pm – 7.30pm.

The meeting will be an opportunity for us to:

• Find out what we can do more of to support you to showcase/exhibit/ profile/create work in libraries.

• Understand what the barriers might have been for groups not applying for funding in the past

• Develop plans to put things in place to enable you to showcase/develop work in libraries in the future

There will also be an opportunity for you to network with other St Helens Arts groups and hear about some of the work we have funded in the past.

Tea and Coffee and light snacks will also be available at the session.
