Creative Case NORTH Workshops 14 – 18 November 2016

How are we telling the story of the Creative Case?

We would like to invite you to a workshop to explore the Creative Case for Diversity. This is the Arts Council’s approach to making diversity a key issue in relation to the programming and audiences, leadership and workforce of the arts and cultural sector.

This Autumn Creative Case NORTH and Museum Development Organisations across the North will come together to deliver a series of workshops exploring the question ‘How are we telling the story of the Creative Case?’

Recognising that the Creative Case for Diversity was launched in 2011, and is still a work in progress, the workshops are an opportunity to prompt thinking, conversations, connections and exchanges about how the arts and cultural sector tell the story of and contribute to the Creative Case.

The workshops will be useful primarily for museums. But also for those who are leading on, or influencing their organisations’ application to the Arts Council’s National Portfolio, as well as organisations, independent artists, curators and producers wanting to engage with current and potential National Portfolio organisations during this process.

Each workshop will consist of two sessions:

Session 1: 11:00-12:30
How are we telling the story of the Creative Case across the arts and cultural sector?

For organisations and individuals across the arts and cultural sector, this workshop will introduce the Creative Case for Diversity and enable those attending to exchange learning, catch up with colleagues and connect with new people through facilitated networking.

Session 2: 13:15-16:00
How are we telling the story of the Creative Case within museums?

For museums considering applying to the 2018-22 National Portfolio, and those considering future applications to Grants for the Arts or Arts Council England Strategic Funds, this workshop will:

  • Demonstrate the value of the Creative Case for Diversity and its contribution to sector development, staff development and programming
  • Further explore the Creative Case for Diversity to stimulate interpretation, articulation and identification of next steps for Museums
  • Acknowledge and recognise the excellence that is present within the Museums sector, including case study presentations from Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums and Manchester Art Gallery
  • Support thinking around what the Creative Case for Diversity means for how Museums deploy their collections in order to meet Arts Council England Goal 1: Excellence is thriving and celebrated in the arts, museums and libraries
