Place Makers – Audience Development

In late November we're asking members and friends of CHARTS to share their stories and experiences of the ways in which arts, culture and heritage can reach and develop their audiences.

We have two online events to register for:

Audience Development Webinar - 30 November (7-8.30pm)
A free-to-access webinar sharing experiences and approaches to audience development for culture, heritage and arts. Jen Skinner of Screen Argyll will share her experience and insights on engaging young audiences, Jenny Hunter of Dunoon Burgh Hall will share her experience of evaluation inclusive of audiences, Ann Campbell will share experience developing audiences for the Dunoon Film Festival and Sarah Boiling will share her expertise on key principles for audience development. Register here.

Audience Development Workshop - 2 December (7-9pm)
Explore the skills, tools and capacity needed for audience development and evaluation. We’ll share examples of inspiring projects and approaches, then invite you to share your ideas and make new connections, supported by Jen Skinner of Screen Argyll and Jenny Hunter of Dunoon Burgh Hall. Register here.

Participation in these events, or Dr Michael Pierre Johnson’s Mapping Your Creative Growth workshop, is a preferred requirement for submitted proposals to our Place Makers: Micro-cluster Networks fund of £5,500 available for each of three creative, ‘place making’ collaborations across Argyll & Isles. 

Who’s making all this happen?
CHARTS is working with The Glasgow School of Art’s Innovation School, supported by Creative Scotland’s Create:Networks fund, to explore with our members what they and local places need to survive and thrive. 

This engagement forms part of the ‘Micro-Cluster Networks’ project, which will provide funds and expert support to local creative and cultural collaborations, or ‘micro-clusters’, to deliver projects for places and communities in the region.
