National Campaign for the Arts seminar

Tuesday 3rd March 2009, 2.30pm - 5.30pm

Arts Manifesto for the General Election

Tobacco Factory, Raleigh Road, Southville, Bristol, BS3 1TF

As you may know, over the coming months the National Campaign for the Arts (NCA) is holding a series of seminars across the nation. 

The aim of the tour is to produce an Arts Manifesto for the next General Election. In order to develop this vital advocacy tool we are seeking input from a wide range of artists and arts organisations. The seminars will look back at previous election and arts manifestos, reflect on what progress has been made, and consider where further steps need to be taken to achieve crucial goals for the arts world. The NCA will then draw together the input from across the country and collate it into the Manifesto for the Arts, which we intend to present at a national conference in late April next year. 

We want to hear from as many people as possible, so if you've not already done so, please register for the seminar event in your region on Tuesday 3rd March, which is kindly being hosted by the Tobacco Factory, Raleigh Road, Southville, Bristol BS3 1TF. The event will run from 2:30 until 5:30pm and anyone is welcome to attend. If you have already registered for this event but you know an artist, arts professional or even someone with a passion for the arts, please forward this email to them, we really do want to hear from as many people as possible!

The seminar is free; however, as there are only 40 places available, attendance will be by registration only on a first come first served basis. To register for this event, please visit the website below.

Don't worry if you can't attend this session, we are holding sessions across the whole of the UK over the coming months: you can find details of these when you register on the website.

If you have any questions about the manifesto seminar tour, please contact our Campaigns Manager, John Munro at [email protected]
