Artists, makers and creatives are invited to a big ideas workshop in King's Lynn to help come up with potential art and culture projects that could be included in funding bid submissions for the town.
The session, being held at King's Lynn Town Hall on Tuesday 12 November, is being led by Rachel Drury from the Cambridge-based not-for-profit arts and technology organisation Collusion. Collusion have a track record for innovative place-based projects that help build skills, raise aspirations and leave a strong legacy and have already run two successful projects in King's Lynn.
Rachel said: "The council is currently in the process of finalising three bids aimed at improving King's Lynn town centre. The council has recognised that alongside larger-scale capital projects, these bids create a not-to-be-missed opportunity to incorporate some fresh and bold thinking about cultural projects or activities that would enhance the visitor experience in King's Lynn. This is a really exciting time for makers and creatives to get involved in projects that could have a lasting legacy."
The workshop is free to attend and is aimed at professional arts organisations, artists and makers. It will run from 1pm until 4:15pm. Places are limited and bookings must be made through the Eventbrite website.
Ideas coming out of the workshop will be written up as brief project proposals so that the council can consider how to include them in any potential future bid submissions.
