Just seen this post and have signed up on this forum awhile ago now but not posted yet.

As involved in this event thought I would jump in.....

There was a similar event run last year that looked at start the debate of what can be done to support arts and culture in Swindon. This is the second one and looking to invite people along to pose questions around arts and culture to the panel.

The hope is to be able to raise key questions, areas of discussion and topics in need of addressing. To look to get answers and an update on as many as possible and then to at least be able to follow up on what will have been raised.

Artsminds is a networking forum for the local arts scene, run by Helen Miah (a SBC and Arts Council South West initiative). The group has approx 200 members across the local arts and is working to be the voice for the arts in Swindon.

It will be a worth while event and the hopefully help to keep views of the local scenes at the forefront of new developments and planning...
