On Thursday Laraine and I were at White City in London to meet Alec McGivan, Head of BBC Outreach. We discussed the success of our Up for Arts project with BBC Radio Merseyside and Alec offered to support the development of a similar project with BBC Radio Lancashire. We also talked about the possibility of asking all BBC local radio stations to run an Up for Arts event during Voluntary Arts Week in May 2013. Finally we agreed to work together on a pilot scheme to encourage BBC staff to volunteer to support local voluntary arts groups. It was a very promising and positive meeting and it is great to have strong support from such a senior BBC executive.
