The AHRC Creative Margins Network
The network responds to the Culture White Paper’s (CM 9218) expectation that all museums, theatres, galleries, opera houses or arts groups that receive government money “should reach out to everyone, regardless of their background”.
The challenge is to develop new models for effective partnerships in specific local communities that move beyond performative acts of accountability and genuinely reach groups who would not usually gain access to arts and art institutions
The aim is to share knowledge across the fields and disciplines of Art and youth/community work by opening spaces for discussion and critical debate.
The network will facilitate a series five one-day regional meetings in 2018 across England and Wales (Bradford, Brighton, Cardiff, London, and Manchester).
