On Friday Laraine and I were at White City in London to meet Alec McGivan, Head of BBC Outreach. We talked about the success of our Up for Arts project with BBC Radio Merseyside and the possibility of developing similar projects with other BBC local radio stations across the North of England. We also discussed how we might be able to work together more generally to help BBC Outreach to fulfil the six BBC Public Purposes: sustaining citizenship and civil society; promoting education and learning; stimulating creativity and cultural excellence; reflecting the UK’s nations and regions, and communities; bringing the UK to the world and the world to the UK; and supporting emerging communications technologies. It was a very encouraging meeting and we identified a number of potential collaborations to focus on initially.

Robin Simpson.
