New Director for arts project in Slough, HOME Slough

Description

HOME Slough is delighted to announce that new Director Saad Eddine Said has joined the team this week.  Saad was previously CEO and Co-Artistic Director of the charity Terre Sans Frontiere (Morocco) and most recently curated the 'Occupy' season in Battersea Arts Centre (UK) and the 'London City Take Over'. Saad is an Artistic Director and Creative Curator who initiates bridges between local communities, artists, activists, social entrepreneurs and innovators, to co-create impactful takeovers. We look forward to Saad bringing his vision to Slough.

Saad Eddine Said, Director at HOME Slough said: “I am delighted to join HOME Slough, collaborate and work alongside one of the most diverse and vibrant communities in the country, while supporting our continuous commitment to increase opportunities and awareness of all the arts in Slough and offering ways for everyone to fulfil their artistic potential. While the town is going through an exciting transformation, it is a great opportunity for local communities to re-think, re-image and re-shape Slough’s creative future. I am looking forward to collaborating with all our partners in supporting this vision.”

HOME Slough is one of 34 independent Creative People and Places projects in areas where people have significantly fewer opportunities to get involved with the arts. Creative People and Places (CPP) has people at its heart. It’s about more people taking the lead in choosing, creating and taking part in brilliant art experiences in the places where they live. Creative People and Places is an action research project funded by Arts Council England.  HOME Slough also receives funding from Slough Borough Council.

HOME Slough is led by a Consortium of Slough Community and Business organisations, it is Chaired by Slough Council for Voluntary Service.
