National event explores approaches to Creative Case for Diversity
The Creative Case for Diversity is the Arts Council's approach to diversity and equality, setting out how both can enrich the arts for artists, audiences and our wider society.
Creative Case NORTH is a sector-led programme of activity exploring the Creative Case for Diversity, developed by a consortium of North Area arts and cultural organisations and artists, supported by Arts Council England.
Arts organisations, museums, freelance artists, curators and producers from across the country are invited to a Creative Case NORTH National Event on 26 April at Leeds City Museum, to listen, share, question and debate approaches to the Creative Case.
Acknowledging differing levels of experience and knowledge around the Creative Case for Diversity, the event will utilise the learning of the current Creative Case NORTH Bursary holders to stimulate discussion and debate.
Rural Arts North Yorkshire, Helix Arts, CapeUK, Octagon Theatre, Prism Arts, Manchester Art Gallery, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums and Sage Gateshead have been awarded bursaries, providing time, space and resources to develop contributions to the Creative Case within programming, collections or curatorial practice, and will share learning at the event.
Further information about the bursaries is available here. More information and registration for 26 April Creative Case NORTH National Event is available here. You can also follow and join national conversations about the Creative Case for Diversity on twitter via #creativecase.
