Shropshire Council Arts and Festivals Service would like to invite you to attend a:

FREE Festival Network - Audience Development Seminar and Workshop
Saturday 20th March 2010
10.00am to 3.30pm at Wem Town Hall, Shropshire

The day will give you more information about audiences in Shropshire. Audiences Central, audience development agency for the West Midlands, will guide you and help you identify ways in which you can use this information to increase audiences at your arts activities, events and festivals.

The Arts and Festival Development Service are proposing that arts organisations and / or festivals could form partnerships in supporting each other to develop audiences. Funding will be available for those organisations who make appropriate proposals and partnerships.

The day is designed to encourage you to network and build partnerships.

This seminar is the second festival network event happening in Shropshire. The first event is happening on Wednesday 17th February, 4.00pm at the Discovery Centre, Craven Arms and will focus on social marketing and the opportunities it presents for festivals and arts organisations.
