Friday 1 NOVEMBER, 10AM-4.45PM
The Garage and Norwich Charitable Trusts Presents
NEW HORIZONS: INTERNATIONAL INSPIRATION

The Garage and Norwich Charitable Trusts present 'New Horizons: International Inspiration' - a provocative, proactive and practical event for leaders and doers across the arts sector. The focus of this year’s New Horizons looks at international work, and asks how international work can positively impact our practice, our organisations and our communities.

Our aim is to make the event as practically useful as possible, so that delegates go away more clued up - and more fired up - and with a clear idea of what they will do differently as a result of attending.

Across the day there will be a range of provocations, conversations, and how to sessions, so that, whether you're a senior manager or a practitioner there's something of value to you.

Speakers include: Libby Battaglia (Audacious), Maya Sharma (Audience Agency), Steve Ball (The REP), Annabel Carberry (Lost in Translation Circus), Sarah Crompton-Howes (NIE), Hannah Slimmon (Farnham Maltings) Alexandra Cole (UEA), Chris Gribble (National Centre for Writing), Veronica Sekules (Groundwork Gallery) and David Hynes (Norwich Charitable Trusts).
