Ideas Labs: Creative Communities – Arts and Social Change in the Estuary


Creative Estuary Ideas Labs is creating new opportunities for collaborative thinking and activities between academics and creative and cultural professionals.

Full details can be found here.

Our next theme is Creative Communities:  Arts and Social Change in the Estuary and takes place virtually across three half-days, 9am – 12:30pm on 18th, 19th and 24th November 2021.

To stimulate collaboration and networking, small-scale seed funding will be made available, for which groups of participants can apply competitively. Project groups will be able to pitch for £6k each to fund their project following the Ideas Lab.

A bursary of £300 will be available to each creative/cultural professional to participate in the Ideas Lab.
