Partnership working and collaboration is at the heart of many arts practices, but how can we ensure we do this well? This seminar will consist of short presentations and lots of time for discussion and debate.

Seminar programme funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

Dr Anna Farthing was recently appointed Arts Programme Director for Bristol Hospitals. Anna has over twenty-five years of experience as a creative producer, project director and consultant in the U.K. cultural sector. With a background that spans performing arts, heritage, museums and festivals. 

Dr Simon Moreton is a researcher at at UWE Bristol and is based at the Pervasive Media Studio. His work looks at how creative organisations understand and communicate the impact of their activities, how and why universities are interested in collaborating them, and what this means for both creative and academic work.
