On Friday I was in Rochester to meet the Swale and Medway Creative People and Places consortium. I think this is the largest of the seven consortia funded by Arts Council England in the first round of Creative People and Places. The core consortium consists mostly of small, grassroots organisations and there is already a clear focus on the role of local amateur arts groups within the planned three-year programme. We had an exciting initial conversation about how to challenge, motivate and involve amateur arts groups.
