This programme period marks the end of our first phase of investment under Arts Council England’s Creative People and Places programme. Our work will continue beyond this period into the future as outlined in our recently published development plan A Modest Proposal and with further investment through Arts Council England’s Creative People and Places programme and Ambition for Excellence.
We are delighted to present this snapshot of work that will be meeting a wider public in the coming months. As with all collaborative work, process is tricky to articulate, and the programme outlined below represents the tip of an iceberg, with long term connections, interactions and relationships stretching deep beneath the surface.
We are co-presenting projects and initiatives with a variety of partners; working in solidarity with collaborators locally, nationally and internationally is a cornerstone of our work. From professional development opportunities and space for debate, to the presentation of ideas and perspectives, the programme outlined questions who gets to make art, and where it gets made, and places artists in direct interaction with varied areas of human life. It is of people, place and time.
