Community Arts Training

The Wiltshire Council’s Arts Service runs a 4-day community arts training course for anyone who would like to develop the skills and knowledge to set up and manage an arts project that will benefit their local community– it may be of interest to any community group including those with no experience of the arts or an arts practitioner who wants to run community arts projects.

Community groups, or those organisations that work with the socially excluded, can really benefit from running arts projects, but they often don’t know where to start. Our aim is to give them the skills and knowledge to take their ideas forward

Using the skills and knowledge of expert trainers, the course is designed to cover all the elements of running a project including pre-planning, fundraising, partnerships, publicity, marketing and managing community arts projects.

Participants need to be based in Wiltshire .Statutory and voluntary organisations with paid staff will be charged £ 40 per person, whilst voluntary groups , individual s and artists will pay £ 3 5 per person. The next 4-day course will take place on 4/ 5 and 11/1 2 November 201 1.

Deadline for applications is Wednesday 5th October 2011. For more information and an application form, please visit www.wiltshire.gov.uk/ arts or email arts@wiltshire.gov.uk or telephone arts development officer,Meril Morgan, 01249 705531
