We’re delighted to announce our first Regenerate session of 2021 will take place on Thursday 4 March at 11am and will discuss: Civic Purpose - What role do orchestras have to play in society?
Regenerate is our series of online conversations designed to explore new ideas that challenge the sector’s thinking and help create positive change for the communities we engage with.
This series focuses on Civic Purpose – what role do orchestras have to play in society? The first conversation takes place on Thursday 4 March at 11am and features Grace Bremner, Senior Programme Coordinator at the Local Trust, Lucy Farrant, Director at Young Norfolk Arts, Sarah Sutton, Community Involvement and Creative Civic Change Coordinator for Whitley Bay Big Local, and Kully Thiarai, Creative Director at Leeds 2023.
This event will discuss how orchestras can be at the forefront of helping communities to rebuild in the post-COVID-19 environment. Whether participation is becoming more important than performance? How can the sector develop local cultural leaders and talent, particularly in isolated and under-invested areas of the country?
Our last Regenerate events sold out quickly, so we encourage you to register early for this session. The event is free, as we wish to make it accessible to as wide a group of people as possible. There is the option to make a voluntary donation post-event, to support our ongoing event costs and to enable us to secure the future of the series.
