Following the success of last year's 'Owning the Arts' conference, this year's conference focusses on 'Making Things Happen'' and sustainability in the arts in the 21st century. It is aimed at artists, arts managers, producers, educators, and community activists who want to share experiences and best practice.
There will be keynote presentations by Bobby Baker, Artist and Artistic Director, Daily Life Ltd and Phelim McDermott, Co-Artistic Director, Improbable theatre company and Founder, Devoted & Disgruntled. Breakout session leaders include: Lois Keidan, Co-Founder and Director, Live Art Development Agency, Russell Thompson, London Programme Coordinator, Apples and Snakes, Natalie Wade, Director, Small Green Shoots music consultancy, and Shelagh Wright & John Kieffer (ThreeJohnsandShelagh).
The breakout sessions will be very hands-on and there will be plenty of time for informal discussions.
'Owning the Arts' will take place on Thursday 5 June, part of the Holloway Arts Festival which runs from 1 – 8 June 2014. The Festival is produced every year by Rowan Arts, an arts charity established in 2003.
