Talks and seminars

Bristol has built a cultural reputation - bursting at the seams with innovative creative institutions and globally recognised art practice. There is strong support for its more established cultural sector but what of the thriving grassroots activity in different parts of the city and the benefit it plays in the health and wellbeing of people's lives. How do we better value and recognise these types of cultural interactions, ensuring inclusivity and accessibility? How do we amplify and embed the voluntary community sector into future cultural agenda?
