Exploring leadership approaches to increase creative and cultural experiences for families.

Family Arts Campaign are delighted to announce their third national Leadership Symposium, ‘Family Arts Leadership Symposium: Collaboration, Connection and Communities’, taking place from 10.30am – 5pm on Wednesday 15th March 2023 at MAC Birmingham.

The event will present an opportunity for senior leaders from across the UK to discuss, learn and explore key issues facing the family arts sector in the present and future.

In this event, we will:

  • Explore the challenges facing families to discuss how cultural leaders can affect change to increase and improve opportunities
  • Discuss ways in which you can collaborate with non-arts and community partners to connect with underserved and under-reached families
  • Help you to connect with like-minded senior leaders both on a national and regional level
  • Provide an opportunity to be a key part of supporting the changes needed in the cultural sector to improve family engagement.

Join us to shape the future landscape for family arts.
