NORTH AYRSHIRE - PLACE PARTNERSHIP
Articulate has been appointed to carry out research on behalf of North Ayrshire Council and Creative Scotland
about the creative and cultural landscape of the area as part of the North Ayrshire Place Partnership.
Called Creative Connections, the first strand of the year-long plan is to look at the current landscape and develop a long-term approach to supporting ambition and addressing gaps in delivery and engagement.
The key elements of our work will include:
Carrying out a cultural planning exercise across the sector, inclusive of
mapping assets, audiences, artists and activity;
Delivering a report on the current situation, and using the research to create a proposal for a phased, planned approach, to addressing and supporting on-going developments across North Ayrshire;
Assisting and supporting on-going developments within North Ayrshire to
establish a formal forum for the creative community;
Investigating the potential audience and community appetite for creative and cultural opportunities
within North Ayrshire.
If you are delivering creative, cultural or arts services in North Ayrshire, we would be delighted if you would contribute to our mapping activity by completing the short survey here:
And join us for one of two focus groups at Harbour Arts Centre in Irvine on Wednesday 5 February.
We are hosting two sessions on 5 February, one at 2pm and another at 6.30pm.
This focus group will give you an update on some of the emerging themes and issues.
It will also be an opportunity for you to feed into the final report.
We’d like to know how easy it is to get involved in the arts, how supported people feel,
where any gaps in provision are and what should be done to improve access to the arts.
We’d also like to know what’s working well and what successes should be highlighted?
To confirm you’d like to attend the afternoon or the evening session, call Andrea McMillan on 07979 602321
