ADUK are developing a new working party to assist us in the development of a new advocacy and research programme. This will serve three major purposes:
• to enable us to be more responsive to the research needs of our members
• to enable us to gather and participate in national research programmes and projects, and
• to represent and advocate on behalf of the arts development sector at a national level.
The Working party will also oversee continuing research programmes, including the annual local authority arts investment survey, which is currently underway.
We need new members for the working party from our membership, and people that can help us to continue to develop stronger advocacy and research strands in our annual programme. If you would like more information about the working party, or would like to volunteer to join us at our first meeting on 8th August in London from 13.30 – 16.00, please call 01269 824728 or email Pete Bryan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
