Network knitting in the visual arts
Turning Point Network Knowledge sharing days: Get yourselves down to Liverpool for what looks like an intriguing event and a chance to catch ‘Sea Odyssey’ by Royal de Luxe
Free events for everyone working in visual arts organisations, artists and freelancers wanting to explore practical knowledge sharing solutions to help them in their daily jobs as well as wanting to make the contemporary arts more sustainable. People who are members of Turning Point groups or other arts committees and management groups will find these sessions particularly valuable.
Programme for both days will be led by Dougald Hine and Michael Craven. Through inspirational presentations and hands-on activities participants will explore knowledge sharing – providing them with ideas to take back to their own environments.
Dougald Hine is a writer, internet entrepreneur, informal learner and a founder of organisations including the ‘School of Everything; and the ‘Space Makers Agency’. He likes to tell stories, explore ideas, bring people together and make things happen and says: “If I’m good at anything, it is making connections – between people, between ideas and between worlds” http://dougald.co.uk
Michael Craven has extensive experience developing and delivering knowledge initiatives in the non-profit and public sectors and leading organisations through major change and development. Consultancy clients include the Royal Institute of British Architects, New Contemporaries, and national advice agencies. Michael was Director, Organisational Development, Arts Council England, Head office 2004/06 and Director Visual Arts, Arts Council, South East 2000/04.
