Participation in the arts

MEMBERS of Carnoustie Recorded Music Club will be available to offer advice and training at a ‘Make a Splash!’ session in the Webster Memorial Theatre on Wednesday, May 18. It will run from 6.45 to 8.45 p.m. and groups are invited to enjoy a free buffet at 6.15 p.m.

The event is being organised and run by Voluntary Arts Scotland.

It will look at existing barriers to arts participation (often unintentional) and how to pull them down. It will also explore ways to spread the word about activities and offer advice on how to grow your group.

‘Make a Splash!’ is backed by a small grants fund, where local groups and organisations can apply for from £250 to £2,000 to encourage long-term participation in the arts by trying something new.
