Creative Case & Power Through Diversity

From Creative case NORTH / Zendeh:

Creative Case – Case Studies

In November 2016 we delivered Creative Case workshops in Gateshead, Manchester and York, focusing on supporting arts and cultural organisations considering applying to the Arts Council England 2018 – 22 National Portfolio.

Those who attended the workshops fed back that they found the case study examples of the Creative Case in action extremely useful in informing their approach to the Creative Case for Diversity.

For this reason, we would like to share with you the case studies from eight Creative Case NORTH Bursaries that were awarded to National portfolio organisations and Major partner museums in January 2016.

The bursaries provided these organisations with time, space and resource to look at how they develop their contribution to the Creative Case within their programming, collections and curatorial practice.  We’ve made the case studies of their activity available for you to download from the ZENDEH blog. Please note that it is recommended that you access the case studies via Google Chrome.

‘Power Through Diversity 12 December 2016

On Monday 12 December Arts Council England are holding a free one-day conference in Manchester.  ‘Power Through Diversity’ aims to provoke debate, inspire change and celebrate good practice around diversity in the sector.

Arts Council have informed us that tickets for the event are now sold out, but they will be live streaming it on their website.  Their agenda for the day has been published and is available here, and the live stream will be available from 11am – 5pm on Monday 12 December via the Arts Council England website.

Creative Case NORTH Focus 2017 – 18

Creative Case NORTH is a sector-led consortium formed in 2013 with the aim of supporting colleagues across the arts and cultural sector to engage with, explore, and share learning around the Creative Case for Diversity.  The work of the consortium is facilitated by ZENDEH and supported by Arts Council England.

Our activity is overseen and developed by the 15 members of our Steering Group who, along with our 29 Critical Friends are drawn from across the arts and cultural sector and the North area.  Our delivery to date has involved a series of learning exchange commissions, artistic responses to the Creative Case, and regional and national events, with our most recent programme of activity developed and delivered in partnership with Museum Development North East, North West and Yorkshire.

We are currently looking ahead to our 2017-18 programme of activity, which will be developed around the theme of ‘Leadership & Governance’.  The Steering Group will be developing the programme in early 2017, and are seeking input from the arts and cultural sector to help inform this.

We would appreciate if you could take 5 minutes to complete a short survey to provide feedback on topics/areas you would like us to focus on, and the type of activity you would find useful. The feedback you provide will feed directly into our development process.

The survey will be open until 12 noon on Monday 19 December 2016.  Thank you.
