This event is an opportunity to find out about the work of the Culture Durham partnership, its plans for the future and to explore potential opportunities for the wider creative sector.
The partnership board is made up of representatives from the County’s cultural and heritage venues and from Arts Council England funded organisations. This will be a chance to network with those organisations and other colleagues in the sector. There is so much happening in County Durham and 2019 will see a really exciting range of developments, openings and events – we want to ensure that the people in the sector know where they may find new opportunities to develop their own work and business.
This year the partnership is delighted to be hosting the event at the World Heritage Site, Durham Cathedral and at Durham University’s Palace Green Library.
We will begin an exciting programme of activity in the Cathedral Chapter House with presentations from keynote speakers highlighting up-coming opportunities, including the Durham Year of Culture 2019, and showcasing examples of successful collaborations between partners and creative practitioners.
The event will feature a Cultural Exchange Market Place where delegates will find out more about the work and ambitions of member organisations hosting information stands, so there will be lots of time to make fruitful connections and spark new ideas.
Delegates will also be invited to view the Cathedral’s Open Treasure exhibition.
The event will conclude with a drinks reception at Palace Green Library, with further opportunities to network and a chance to view to see behind the scenes work underway to renovate Bishop Cosin’s Library.
We look forward to welcoming friends old and new to a stimulating and valuable afternoon in an inspiring, world-renowned venue.
