AND is hosting three day-long events for senior managers in Cultural organisations. The events are designed to provide an opportunity for learning and the exchange of knowledge and are focused on key themes critical to cultural education in London.

Each event will offer:

  • Space for critical reflection
  • Intelligence from AND’s research
  • Keynote presentations from the sector
  • Cross-sector networking & peer to peer learning
  • Action planning

The events are themed around School, Place and Value with each one focussing on a particular theme but with links between all of them. Events will take place at Coin St. 108 Stamford St, Lambeth, London SE1 9NH.

  • How to make the most of the different processes of monitoring, evaluation and advocacy?
  • What are the different ways to talk about quality?

The morning session was facilitated by Francois Matarasso, a freelance writer, researcher and consultant with a 35 year career in socially engaged practice.
