Notes from the Chair

This is going to be a busy AD:uk week for me, as I’m going to two regional meetings, the east region in Cambridge on Tuesday, and the south west meeting in Bristol on Thursday. I hope to see some of you there. I’m particularly pleased to be doing this now, shortly after our national meeting, where all the regional co-ordinators come together to share their experiences, discuss policy, and plan our next steps.  

One of the major areas of discussion was around communication and how we ensure that the whole membership is able both to find out what’s going on, and to contribute to discussions. You might have seen that we are introducing regional twitter feeds to accompany the national AD:uk feed. If you are familiar with twitter the relevant names are listed further down the e-zine; if not hopefully at your next regional meeting there will be an opportunity to find out more. I am also taking the plunge and setting up my own AD:uk twitter account, @janewilson_ADuk. We’ll all also be using the hashtag #artsdevuk.  

I hope that being able to follow, more or less in real time, what your national organisation and regional co-ordinators are doing on your behalf will be useful, and provide a sensible complement to the weekly e-zine and website.  

I’m expecting news on the National Planning Policy Framework this week: you might be aware that Arts Development UK is one of the founder members of the Culture in Planning Alliance, which is a broad alliance of arts and cultural organisations, and we will be responding to the framework both as ADuk and through the alliance, so please when it comes out, if you have any responses please email me at
