Drake Music and Salamanda Tandem
14th and 15th July 2 - 5pm
East Midlands Programme Manager Drake Muisc
Dear Arts, Health and Care Professionals
If you or anyone you know is interested in arts, and disability work in Nottinghamshire do get in touch!
In order to contribute we would like to invite you to one of our consultation seminars:
14th July 2 - 5pm at Drake Music - Blue Water Studios in Ollerton, Nottinghamshire
15th July 2 - 5pm at the Salamanda Tandem offices in West Bridgford, Nottinghamshire.
Its all about how we can help support and develop a fertile arts and disability practice in Nottinghamshire over the next few years. We have been commissioned by Nottinghamshire County Council's Arts Service, to undertake a consultation project with both experienced professionals and other artists who may be new to the field but are interested in reaching disabled people through the arts in Nottinghamshire. For development to happen we need to look at what the barriers are for arts, health and carer professionals working in Nottinghamshire - e.g. work opportunities, funding, volunteering, training issues etc and would therefore like to know your thoughts.
Salamanda Tandem and Drake Music are conducting the seminars, and there will be a series of focused questions to discuss. If you can't make either event but would like to contribute, we can send out the questions to you via email, or if you'd rather have a chat by telephone that would be great too.
Please forward to anyone you feel would like to make a contribution.
RSVP by July 10th 2009.

I just wanted to share the good news that Drake Music was awarded in April with the "Two Tick - Positive About Disabled People" symbol to use with all our recruitment and publicity. This symbol is awarded by Job Centre Plus to promote organisations which comply to their 5 comittments. You can find further information about this here
This award is reviewed annually.
Enjoy the sunshine everyone!
