How We Can Support You
We know that working in a predominantly rural county can be a challenge. If you have an idea, who do you talk to? If you need advice on writing a funding application, who can you call? Or if you just want to be connected with other like-minded people, where do you go?
Part of our role is to offer answers to these questions. And if we don’t know, or we’re not able to help, we’ll be honest and point you towards someone who might. Within our team, we have a wealth of knowledge and experience that we’re happy to share, but we also have finite resources and capacity to respond to every request. But we will do our best to help.
In practice, this means we can be at the end of the phone or Skype for a chat, respond to email requests or, when appropriate, arrange to meet face to face. Throughout each year, we facilitate several networking meetings for artists and practitioners to share good practice, broker relationships and reduce the isolating impact of working as an individual or small company.
