BBC Launches Get Creative Campaign
Today marks the launch of BBC Get Creative – a celebration of the world-class arts, culture and creativity that happens every day across the UK.
Over the course of a year, BBC Get Creative will shine a spotlight on the creativity that surrounds us everywhere in venues of all shapes and sizes: from village hall to the concert hall, and of course at home.
Get Creative is a campaign led by the BBC and What Next? in partnership with a huge range of arts, cultural and voluntary organisations across the UK including the Belgrade Theatre.
BBC Get Creative came about as a result of the Warwick Commission’s year long investigation into the Future of Cultural Value; a politically neutral and independent study into the kind of investment needed to ensure all forms of culture are inclusive and accessible for all; and collaboration with Voluntary Arts, Culture at King’s, 64 Million Artists, Fun Palaces, Cultural Learning Alliance and Arts Council England.
Get Creative is organised by the BBC with What Next?, a movement bringing together arts and cultural organisations from across the UK, to articulate and strengthen the role of culture in our society.
As part of a week-long series of launch events, the Belgrade Theatre will play host to a debate on Midlands Diversity in association with What’s Next and the Third Conversation on Thursday 26 February between 5.30pm – 8.00pm.
The Third Conversation is a dynamic meeting of artists who share, learn and network amongst established and emerging artists whilst discussing issues around sustaining a career in the arts.
To attend this event and get involved in the discussion around Diversity, please email Hardish Virk at firstname.lastname@example.org by Mon 23 Feb.
