Last Friday I was at Barking Learning Centre in East London for the Arts Council England London Creative People and Places briefing session. Coincidentally, as well as being one of the 71 eligible areas to apply for Creative People and Places funding, Barking and Dagenham is currently developing a new arts strategy. One of the consultants working on the strategy joined us on Friday to take the opportunity to talk to a wide range of local arts organisations and community groups about how they could become involved in the development of the strategy. After Shira Hess from ACE London and I had outlined the details of the Creative People and Places programme and the role that amateur arts groups might play within it, there was a fascinating discussion which made real progress in starting to develop a consortium application for Barking and Dagenham.
