The event will involve discussion and debate on the role that schools have to play in cultural education in the rural environment, the implications of technology and the wider engagement of children and young people with communities of cultural interest within and beyond the locality.
BBC Radio Cumbria will be in attendance to capture conversations and interviews for broadcast. The event is to celebrate the launch of Get Creative – a campaign which sets out to encourage a broad audience to engage more meaningfully with the arts.
What is Get Creative?
Get Creative is a major celebration of arts, culture and creativity. Led by the BBC and What Next? in collaboration with a wide range of arts, cultural and voluntary organisations, everyone is invited to get involved and share their creative talents.
Get Creative will launch on 19 February 2015 with a week of debates and activity and will last for 12 months. The campaign will culminate in a celebratory weekend over 20 & 21 February 2016.
The BBC will be looking for information about special events, news stories, videos and podcasts to highlight on the Get Creative page. Please ask for their handy guidelines and send your content information to: firstname.lastname@example.org
