ISAN On the Road: MANCHESTER
This year, rather than asking you to come to ISAN, ISAN will be coming to you... during the summer of 2016, ISAN - the Independent Street Arts Network - will be visiting various festivals and events across the country, with a series of networking events for the Outdoor Arts sector.
Each event will include a discussion about issues affecting the sector, the opportunity to share information, events and ideas, the chance to discover more about the host festival and networking time with fellow producers and programmers and artists. We'll be inviting funding representatives to help with your financial questions and hopefully we can help advise or point you in the right direction on most matters.
There will be some modest catering and a friendly atmosphere. Anyone with an interest in the Outdoor Arts sector is welcome to attend, but, if we reach capacity, we'll give priority to ISAN members - hope that seems fair.
ISAN visits Manchester Day for the first event and the chance to learn more about the parade, which, over the past seven years, has grown into a major part of the citys cultural calendar and is now a much broader city-wide celebration of outdoor arts; in association with Walk The Plank.
