What Next? Corby
February 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
At 6pm on Wednesday February 13th join us for What Next? where we’ll be hearing from guest speakers from The Young Foundation and Social Life about how the arts can contribute to social change and innovation. The Young Foundation’s Dr Mary Hodgson is a trained ethnographer, as well as an experienced researcher and strategist working to understand inequality, social change and civic activism. Joining the Dr is co-founder of Social Life, Nicola Bacon who has in the last five years worked with Social Life internationally and in the UK, studying the relationships between people and places.
Please note the new time and venue for our meetings, we’ll be in the B1 bar at The Core (on level -1).
What are What Next? meetings?
Regular meetings of individuals that are interested in, and passionate about, the role of arts and culture in our town. We’ll be hosting monthly meetings (keeping to a strict one-hour time limit!) to explore the position of arts and culture in the life of our town, whether through well-being, visitor economy or local policy, and using our discussions to shout about the value of culture locally.
There’ll be a mixture of discussions and guest speakers, through a programme led by the groups’ interests. Meetings will be open for any interested individual to join!
What Next? is a movement bringing together arts and cultural organisations from across the UK, to articulate, champion and strengthen the role of culture in our society. The What Next? movement began at the Young Vic, London in 2012. Since then it has become a movement of 34 Chapters across the country, representing hundreds of organisations and individuals. It is built around building ‘unlikely alliances’ and using these to develop the voice of the cultural sector both locally and nationally.
Hosted at The Core at the Corby Cube (B1 Bar).
