ISAN Spring General Meeting 2014
Thursday 27 February 2014
The Friends Meeting House
12noon to 4.45pm
Join us for our first General Meeting of 2014 to learn about our latest announcements and plans in moving forward into 2014 and beyond. Find out about the latest developments in outdoor arts and new opportunities.
A packed agenda including the announcing new ISAN initiatives and projects:
• Making the Case – Outdoor Arts PR Campaign 2014: project led by ISAN and to be delivered through the appointment of Four Colman Getty PR Agency on behalf of and as part of the Catalyst Outdoor Arts Consortium comprising: EEA (Catalyst lead), BOSI, ISAN, Kazzum, Kinetika and Tangled Feet. This PR campaign is being designed with the aim to transform public and stakeholder perceptions of Outdoor Arts so that more funding comes into the outdoor arts sector. The PR Campaign is part of a programme of work supported through Catalyst Arts funding made up of investment from Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. Catalyst Arts is aimed to help cultural organisations diversity their income and access more funding from private sources.
• ISAN Website New Design & Launch: is a whole new website with a clean new design, that will be dynamic and easy to navigate positioning ISAN and our members, as the ‘go to’ destination for anyone wishing to find out about, organise or commission outdoor arts. The website will prioritise the visually exciting and inspiring nature of our members work, making it easy for members to update their own information, add news and pay membership fees online including a ‘members only’ zone. The website will enable members and non-members to access resources to help organise outdoor arts events (download guides and ordering publications) and will provide access to the research and advocacy work undertaken by us here at ISAN. Overall, the new website will have enhanced functionality with lots of new features. It will be much easier to find information on the work that we are doing and to search for members. Plus, the website has been designed to be future proofed by automatically resizing correctly for mobile phones and tablets.
• Event Guidance: learn about the latest developments from our expert advisor, plus the launch of our new guidance documents detailing current advice on Cranes and Police Charging. These guidance documents are free to ISAN members.
• Future Directions for and Current Issues in Outdoor Arts: facilitated discussion exploring future direction for and issues currently affecting outdoor arts.
