Connecting Creative Communities European Conference

COLLAGE ARTS – Connecting Creative Communities across Europe

On Saturday 5 September 2015 the Bernie Grant Arts Centre in Tottenham will be transformed as it hosts Taking Part – a celebrating of the role the arts is playing in building a new Europe.

The event takes over the whole of the Bernie Grant Arts Centre and will start with the launch of three new qualifications in Cultural Learning developed in partnership with our 13 European partners through the European Cultural Learning Network (ECLN)  from 9.15am to 12 noon. Followed by a Free Festival, Taking Part, from 12(noon) until 6 pm, the square will be transformed into a music venue with live music. The theatre will offer a rolling program of international performing artists.

Manoj Ambasna, Director of Collage Arts in Haringey, explains: “For many years now Collage Arts has been working with like minded organisations across Europe. These partners are achieving social and economic change in their communities – whilst delivering performing and visual arts of the highest standard. So we are celebrating all that these organisations have achieved. I believe now is the time to bring together our creative energies to show how participation in arts and cultural activities can help shape the Europe we want to live in and where no one gets left behind.”
