Calling all local
creatives, performers, producers, artists, designers, writers, arts
organisations, diverse community groups, museums and libraries. The Diversity Arts Network
is seeking to develop 3-4 new projects and commissions using local artists,
arts organisations and venues in partnership with DAN consortium
DAN has been awarded funds from the Arts Council to develop its
membership consortium in the South East. As part of this we will be
undertaking a mapping of all local organisations and artists including arts and
community organisations, museums, libraries and any other relevant networks.
We will be gathering information on projects that members have been involved in
that link to the diverse sector and the challenges that they have
DAN will share learning from this research, and explore opportunities for partnerships and collaborations with NPOs and non NPOs locally, nationally or both. Conclusions from the research will form the basis of a future local strategy that will result in more consistent and dynamic programming, partnerships and collaborations of diverse artists and arts/cultural organisations.
Overall the data will provide the Network with a valuable resource and recognised position in the locality as a body taking a central role in contributing to the Creative Case.
This data collected will
include information on venues, performances spaces and promotors/bookers
across the region with potential to work with, support and programme artists
from culturally diverse backgrounds. The mapping will be used to more
accurately access the art-form types and ranges of experience of diverse
artists and arts/cultural organisations in the region.
If you are interested in being part of DAN and developing new partnerships, projects and commissions with local artists and organisations we would be interested in hearing from you.
There will be opportunities for all attendees to talk about their projects and to network.
A light lunch will be provided from 1.30pm.
We would like to thank
The Horsebridge Arts Centre and The Woodville for their support in co-hosting
these sessions with us.
