Creative Redditch - Wednesday 6th February

The idea of the event is to mingle with other like-minded individuals to give their views to help shape the future of arts, culture, libraries and museums for the next ten years in Redditch. The event also forms the first of several engagement sessions which will help to shape a 'Creative People and Places' bid for up to £2m from Arts Council England to radically change the current creative opportunities in the town.

Anyone in the borough is welcome to attend, particularly individuals and groups with a creative interest, whether this is in the form of art, sculpture, music, performance, dance, singing, photography or other aspect of the arts, heritage and cultural sector.
