Time: 10am-3.30pm

Venue: SGS College Stroud Campus, Stratford Road, Stroud, Gloucestershire GL5 4AH

Sector Matters: Briefings

As part of its bridge role RIO has been running Sector Matters briefings up and down the region, with good feedback.  These briefings provide up-to-date and useful information on sectors outside the cultural arena – for example schools, health, housing – and give you an opportunity to talk about important issues and challenges facing your sector.

Sector Matters: Schools

Schools have reshaped, restructured, federated, cooperated, ‘academised’ and become free!

So, how do you, in an equally changing environment, keep up with the latest?  What do these changes mean for art, culture and creativity? And what are the challenges and opportunities to work with schools in new ways?

We will fill in the gaps and help make it easier to engage with and relate to schools.

What people have said so far:

“Informative and reassuring - a spur to be brave and get on with it. A challenge to work together and network to raise the profile and voice of young people in our world” - Sheila Snellgrove, Barbican Theatre, Plymouth

“This will really help us to better position ourselves within the sector and be more innovative in our approach to working with schools.” Jill Shonk - Gloucestershire Archives
