POSTPONED: South West Area Group Meeting

The Foyle Studio, 
Tate St. Ives

Engage members and regional colleagues* are invited to join South West Reps for an Area Group Meeting at Tate St. Ives on Friday 27 April at 12pm.

This meeting will begin with lunch, kindly provided by Tate St. Ives and Engage.

Following on from our meeting last summer we have invited RIO, the SW bridge organisation to talk about their work and methods of support for artists and arts organisations, particularly in the aspects of Arts Award and the Cultural Education Challenge. We have also invited Kamina Walton the Diversity Rep for Engage to lead us in an informed discussion on inclusion and diversity. We will then open this out to a broader conversation about the range of diversity issues in our area; Rachael (SW Engage Rep and Learning Curator: Children, Schools and Young People, for Tate St. Ives) will present some case studies on rural diversity and championing diverse audiences.

The meeting is an opportunity for all colleagues working in galleries, museums and education to catch up, network and help plan future events in the South West.

Please contact Rachael Woodhead in advance if you would like to present a project along these themes, on rachael.woodhead@tate.org.uk

To book a place or request further information, contact SW Area Group Rep Anna Aroussi on annaaroussi@gmail.com. Please include dietary requirements.

Location: The Foyle Studio
