On Tuesday I was in London to meet Caroline Diehl, Chief Executive of the Media Trust. We looked back at the amazing success of ‘Up for Arts’ – the pilot participation campaign run by Voluntary Arts England and the Media Trust in 2007 and identified key learning points. We discussed the possible development of a voluntary arts ‘zone’ on the Community Channel which would showcase voluntary arts activity and best practice. Plans were presented for a joint participation project in Liverpool to be undertaken by Voluntary Arts England and the Media Trust in partnership with BBC Radio Merseyside. We also talked about opportunities to run further ‘Up for Arts’ campaigns together. With so many exciting potential joint initiatives in prospect we agreed to draw up a formal partnership agreement between VAN and the Media Trust.
