NEW: First Event Tuesday February 26th 2-4PM The Green Room, Pavilion Dance South West
The Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Cultural Enquiry is holding its first event - a round table discussion on technology and the arts. We want to bring together people from across the cultural, creative and business communities to explore the potential that technology can play in boosting the new city region’s cultural sector, alongside supporting the growth of the wider economy. Questions to be covered include:
⁃How we can use technology to reach new audiences in new ways?
⁃How can it help us connect nationally and internationally?
⁃How can we build closer relationships between the creative industries and cultural organisations?
⁃How can technology and smarter use of data help us develop new sustainable, business models?
Facilitated by the enquiry team of Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy, assisted by internationally-renowned cultural leader Dick Penny, formerly Chief Executive of Watershed and the Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol, this 2 hour discussion is the first of our cultural futures events - others will examine new business models, evaluation, sustainability and governance. The events will feed into our draft and final reports which will be out later this year.
Refreshments will be served. Please sign up as numbers are limited by space.

The Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Cultural Enquiryis holding its first Town Hall Debate – an open discussion for anyone interested in looking at the role culture plays in people’s lives and exploring the opportunity for along-term cultural vision for all our communities.
In this first debate we will be looking at PLACE and the role of culture and creativity in supporting and improving urban spaces as we come together to form the UK’s newest city region. Areas we will be looking at will include:
We will have a panel of national and local figures, including Elspeth Mcbain CEO of the Lighthouse, Poole’s nationally significant centre for the arts, and will then open up to a Question time style discussion.
