What is the Campaign about?

Welsh language information

The Family Arts Campaign is a large scale, national collaborative programme led by the visual and performing arts sectors to increase levels of arts engagement by families. The Campaign focuses on three main areas of work:

  • Increasing the amount and range of high-quality content available
  • Increasing the quality of experience
  • Improving marketing

 

Who is the Campaign for?

This Campaign is primarily aimed at increasing and broadening audiences and participants for the visual and performing arts sectors generally, though our work is focused on those organisations who are members of our partner organisations, as well as ACE’s National Portfolio Organisations (NPOs).

Other organisations not part of one of the identified groups above, including museums, libraries, and educational establishements, are also welcome and encouraged to access all aspects of the Campaign.

Who is running the Campaign?

The Family Arts Campaign is an initiative of ten organisations & trade bodies:

Led by Dena Bagi of the British Ceramics Biennial
Tuesday 18 October 2016, 11am – 4pm, Ruthin Craft Centre, Lon Parcwr, Ruthin LL15 1BB
Using the family engagement programme at the British Ceramics Biennial as a case-study, Dena Bagi will enable participants to this creative workshop to explore and develop innovative ideas for family interactivity. In this workshop you’ll hear about the creative development process utilised within British Ceramics Biennial’s engagement department. The critical process of making is at the heart of British Ceramic Biennial’s engagement and refers to research and best practice in the area of family learning. Through the workshop you’ll consider this development structure and
create tailored family workshop activity.

To find out more about the engagement programme at British Ceramics Biennial go to the website or learning blog. The workshop will be participatory and is designed to offer practitioners time and space and stimulus to explore ideas and share experiences with peers.

Please complete and send this form to familyarts@fieldworking.co.uk by Thursday 6 October 2016. Places on the workshop are limited and so whilst we hope we will be able to accommodate everyone who expresses an interest in attending there is a chance that we may not have capacity for everyone. Those based in Wales or working with organisations based in Wales will be given priority. We will confirm with you as soon as possible after the 6 October whether your place is secure or on a waiting list.
