Training: BAFA Spring Roadshows

BAFA Spring Roadshows 2014BAFA Spring Roadshows: ACCESS ALL AREAS: Development

The BAFA Spring Road Show #BAFA14RS brings festivals and events of all sizes together with leading professionals in a unique active learning forum and this year, responding to feedback, we have particularly selected our locations to coincide with a live festival: combining the theoretical with the practical!

  • Cambridge: Friday 4 April, 1-5pm with Cambridge Literary Festival
  • Edinburgh: Friday 11 April, 1-5pm with Edinburgh Science Festival
  • London: Friday 25 April, 1-5pm with BAFA
  • Cheltenham: Thursday 1 May, 105pm with Cheltenham Jazz Festival

The topic we shall be in exploring in 2014 is ‘development’ under our theme for the year ‘Access All Areas’: 

  • Audience Development: accessing new audiences – specifically the deaf and disabled sector with Attitude is Everything, StageText and other organisations that offer specialist advice
  • Funding Development: how to access funding from Europe – specifically the new Creative Europe funding stream with case studies from organisations with EU funding success
  • Employee Development: access to the new pension regulations with specialist advice from La Playa
  • Programme Development: how – and why – to access the Cultural Attaché network
  • Festival Development: for the ‘Fringe curious’ how to access and engage with the Fringe Festival network
  • Marketing Development: access to national listings services with The List

These focussed, interactive afternoon seminars are designed with peer engagement at their core. A mix of specialist led sessions with round table, problem solving discussions in an informal atmosphere, there will also be a chance to engage with all our speakers on a 121 basis. Leave with more than you thought, more than you brought!
