A Sense of Place: Creative Gathering with the Wiltshire forum on Community Area Partnerships
Creative Gatherings have been a strand of work within the Arts and Social Change programme with the RSA and Wiltshire Council partnership that supports the community campus programme across Wiltshire. Please have a look at our Facebook site to see what these have been about and in particular, artists Chris Gylee and Sarah Godshill’s responses to these.
At the last Creative Gathering held at the Wiltshire Heritage Museum in Devizes on March 13th, we talked about including community activists into our next Gathering. We are really delighted to be linking with the Wiltshire forum for Community Area Partnerships (WfCAP) and doing this on July 8th, this time in Westbury and sharing a meal together again. Here are details:
A Sense of Place: Tuesday 8 July 2014, 6 – 9pm
Westbury Leigh Community Hall, Westbury Leigh, Wiltshire, BA13 3SQ
Please let Natalie Remington know if you will be attending by Wednesday, July 2nd at firstname.lastname@example.org
We know this is quite late notice for what can be a busy time, but hope that you can join us. As ever, it will be on a first come, first served basis and we anticipate larger numbers given this wider group of people attending, so please RSVP as soon as you can!
The Creative Gathering will be co-facilitated by Laura Pictor who co-ordinates the WfCAP network, Jocelyn Cunningham from the RSA and Dominic Campbell, the artist/producer for the Pass It On commission. In addition, we have Pippa Jones joining us from Create Gloucestershire who will talk about this innovative network and Carrie Creamer from Wiltshire Youth Arts Partnerships on the Youth Arts Charter and the many exciting plans evolving there. As ever, the Creative Gathering will involve talking and doing and making new connections and food!
Please bring a dish to share that for you encapsulates summer!
We are also asking everyone who is joining us to also bring someone else with them that comes from their own community and is involved in community action in some day – they need not be artists or creatively focused, but have a passion and commitment to working with the place you live in. In this way, we hope to widen the Creative Gatherings to include many more people that are interested in arts and community development in any form.
Please also get in touch with any further questions, which we will be more than happy to answer and feel free to pass this invitation on to anyone else in the creative and cultural communities of Wiltshire.
