As part of the ongoing Knowledge Sharing programme, Turning Point Network is holding a series of free events that include a mix of talks and practical sessions, facilitated by people who are using knowledge sharing techniques to make a difference within their organisations and networks.
19th April 2012 || Newcastle & Gateshead, hosted by BALTIC
20th April 2012 || Liverpool, hosted by Liverpool Biennial
These are the first two in an ongoing series of events that will take place across England.
"Experts and skilled trainers will explore ways to access and value knowledge you didn’t know you had" says Claire Pollock, coordinator of the Knowledge Sharing programme for Turning Point Network. "The days will also provide insights into the ‘why and how’ of knowledge sharing and how the Turning Point Network can strengthen the sector by supporting development of knowledge sharing across the contemporary arts."
"Attendees will hear from people inside and outside of the arts who knowledge share really well", continues Claire. "They will learn about: how they share, develop ideas and make things happen in collaboration; how in these challenging times, knowledge sharing can be a vital philosophy that puts people first; and how knowledge sharing can stimulate engagement and debate to effect change and achieve collective action."
Who should attend?
These free events are for everyone working in contemporary visual arts organisations, artists and freelancers wanting to explore practical knowledge sharing solutions to help them in their daily jobs, as well as wanting to make the contemporary arts more sustainable. People who are members of Turning Point groups or other arts committees and management groups will find these sessions particularly valuable.
