On Wednesday afternoon I was Arts Council England in London to meet Meli Hatzihrysidis. We talked in detail about our Volunteering in the Arts project and the arrangements for publishing the resulting toolkit for arts organisations using volunteers, which is to be launched in Manchester on Monday 10 September. We also discussed the Creative People and Places programme. This week ACE announced the first seven consortia that have been awarded funding from Creative People and Places to undertake activities to increase engagement in the arts over the next three years (see: http://www.artscouncil.org.uk/news/arts-council-news/first-round-grants-empower-communities/). Meli and I talked about the support Voluntary Arts will provide to these consortia to ensure that amateur arts groups are involved in each case.
