On Friday I have been at the offices of Arts Council England East Midlands in Nottingham to meet Phil Cave, ACE’s Director, Engagement and Participation. With only a few hours to go to the deadline for applications to the first round of ACE’s Creative People and Places programme, Phil and I reflected on what we had learned from the Creative People and Places regional briefing sessions around the country. It has been fascinating to see the different approaches being taken in the eligible areas to form consortia and develop applications. I have been pleased by the extent to which applications seem to be taking seriously the need to involve local amateur arts groups, though I suspect there is still some work to do to realise this in practice. Phil said he has been delighted by the level of interest in the programme from across the country and was looking forward to starting to read the applications.
