One element of the work we are doing at Creative Island, is to commit to convening a series of local conversations with the cultural community of each town on the Isle of Wight.
The ambition is to speak about and listen to the particular challenges and opportunities that we all face, to explore collaborative opportunities, share information and network with others.
The first of these creative events was held in Ryde in October 2023 at Ryde Library. We invited creative practitioners, cultural leaders, town councillors and influences in Ryde, to join us in what we hope will be the start of, perhaps, twice yearly meetings designed to support the cultural community of Ryde.
The second meet-up will be held on Monday 29th January 2024. If you would like to attend, please click here to book your place.
There is no agenda as such but if anyone would like to talk about particular issues, please let us know either in advance or when you arrive so we can plan the best use of time. Already we know there is an update on the idea of joint marketing and we’re hoping Ryde Town Hall Trust will be able to share where they are in their plans.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Venue address: Ryde Library, George St, Ryde PO33 2JE.
