Following on from our Sign Café earlier this month, new dates added
Come along to our British Sign Language Café at Locomotion Café at The Garage, Norwich, on Friday 9th March and Friday 13th April from 10am till 11am.
Do you want to learn or improve your, British Sign Language in an informal and sociable way, using fun activities to practise your signing skills?
The session will be led by Patricia Spencer-Thompson, who signed for all of the interpreted My First Panto: Little Red Riding Hood shows in 2017.
All are welcome, regardless of previous experience and we are all looking forward to seeing you there.
Dementia Friends Session at The Garage Norwich – 12pm on 13 March
Become a Dementia Friend during your lunch hour.
A Dementia Friend learns a little bit more about what it's like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action - anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend. Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about Dementia Friends to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts. You will learn more about dementia and how you can help to create dementia friendly communities.
The session will be run by Artistic Director of All-In Productions. Sessions is free but please book place using the link below.
64 Millions Artists – looking for case studies
64 Million Artists has been commissioned by Arts Council England to create a report on Cultural Democracy. This will bring together research and case studies to show where democratic practice is flourishing in the arts across the UK.
We are currently working with this definition of cultural democracy (although we understand it's a complex term!):
the idea that culture is inherently diverse, owned by everyone, extends beyond formal definitions, and that decisions about what it is, who makes it, where it happens are taken by active citizens.
We are looking for case studies from across the country (and potentially beyond) that show examples of citizens being actively engaged in cultural processes, where they have equal decision making power. This might include community programming, co-creation of work or projects, collective decision making, democratic use of space, citizen led funding or governance or a range of other practices.
If you have any examples from your own experience or others please do contact us by email on firstname.lastname@example.org. If you'd just like to hear more about the process, please also get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
