Join us to find out more about The Wakefield Arts Partnership (WAP), a collective of Wakefield based organisations and individuals working in the arts, and how you can get involved.
We will hear from guest speakers about examples of cultural partnerships and collaborative projects with plenty of time for questions and discussion. We need your support to develop our priority actions for the next 12-months to support the development of the arts across the Wakefield District.

This event will be chaired by Bev Adams, Artistic Director of Faceless Arts and member of Wakefield Arts Partnership.
Background to this event
In 2015 Beam, on behalf of the Wakefield Arts Partnership commissioned Andrew Dixon to undertake research into the nature of cultural partnership in Wakefield and explore how more collective action and leadership might add value to the existing cultural strengths in the District. The process included workshops, one-to-one meetings and group discussions engaging over 120 people. Andrew’s report ‘Wakefield – The Perfect Partner’ can be downloaded here.
The report highlighted a number of recommendations that could be the starting point for WAP priorities. Following this scoping phase we are now looking to finalise our priorities and develop actions over the next year.
This event is part of Arts in Place II – a Beam programme funded by Arts Council England.
