Place Makers – Creative Production

From October 26th  to 30th we are asking members and friends of CHARTS to share their stories of #creative production and help everyone gain insight into the ways we get the most value from culture, heritage and arts in Argyll and Isles.

On the evening of Tuesday November 3rd  (7-8.30pm) please join us for a free-to-access webinar sharing stories of creative production from figures operating across Argyll and Isles and Scotland. Register here.

On Wednesday November 4th (7-9pm), we invite CHARTS members to sign up for an online Zoom-based workshop to explore ways for providing greater creative and critical exchange for culture, heritage or arts in Argyll and Isles. We’ll share examples of inspiring projects and approaches, then use design methods for you to share and develop your ideas and make new connections. Register here.

There is £5,500 available for each of three creative, ‘place making’ collaborations across Argyll & Isles and participation in the Place Makers workshops, or Dr Michael Pierre Johnson’s Mapping Your Creative Growth workshop, is a mandatory requirement for submitted proposals. The call for proposals will open shortly.

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.
