On Tuesday Helen Thomas and I were at The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) at Canary Wharf in London to meet Francesca Canty, LOCOG UK Cultural Programmes Adviser. Francesca gave us an update on the process by which voluntary arts groups can apply for the Inspire Mark to be part of the Cultural Olympiad and told us about several voluntary arts projects which have been awarded the Inspire Mark. We discussed the work Helen will be doing, as the new Voluntary Arts ‘Once in a Lifetime’ Project Officer, to encourage national voluntary arts umbrella bodies and their members to take advantage of the opportunities available within the Cultural Olympiad. Francesca is going to introduce Helen to the team of LOCOG Creative Programmers and we started to develop ideas for a number of ways in which we could work together to encourage more successful Inspire Mark applications.
