why we do what we do

a series of peer-to-peer conversations exploring the purpose of arts organisations in the South East

In response to COVID-19 and the impact it’s having on the world, the South East venue network is holding small-group, peer-to-peer conversations to explore the role of arts and culture and the purpose of arts organisations today.

The conversations are specifically for venues in the South East network who are interested in challenging existing models and re-evaluating the purpose of culture today.

Each session will be hosted by a guest from the house venue network.

Groups will be between 4-10 people and attendance is on a first-come-first-served basis. There is a waiting list.

This conversation will be led by Anthony Roberts from Colchester Arts Centre:

What have we learnt from COVID-19?
