This is for a new seminar programme and the deadline has been extended to 14 March 2014
Arts Development UK are partnering with the NCVO Cultural Commissioning Programme to develop 2 new Cultural Commissioning Seminars to take place in June 2014. The Seminar Programme will be in association with the National Leisure and Culture Forum. They intend to hold one seminar in London (at theCamden Centre on 6th June 2014) and one in the north of England (at Cast in Doncaster on 10th June 2014).
They are seeking good practice case studies for presentations at both seminars and are interested in presentations from both Commissioning and Commissioned perspectives. They are looking specifically at Cultural Commissioning examples into non-cultural sectors (i.e.: health, wellbeing, crime prevention, childrens services, social care etc), and not just the commissioning process itself in engaging artists and arts groups. The purpose of the seminar is to promote good practice and to focus cultural organisations on the potential of future commissioning practice in non-cultural sectors. The seminar programme is aimed at local authorities (commissioning officers and cultural services), arts, libraries and museums services and independent organisations, and artists and others involved in the cultural sector. In particular (but not exclusively) we are seeking case studies that consider:
Cultural commissioning to deliver outcomes for older people
Cultural commissioning to deliver mental health & wellbeing outcomes
Cultural commissioning to deliver place-based outcomes
Engaging users in service design
Deadline 14th March.
