Inspiring people sought for the Aspire Higher Creative Conference  
The Culture Challenge are teaming up again with Aspire Higher and the University of Bedfordshire for the Aspire Higher Creative Conference 2020.

The date of the conference is 23rd April 2020 taking place at University of Bedfordshire (Bedford Campus) from 9:30am – 1:30pm with a short break at 11:00am. There will be 4 artists delivering talks and workshops on the day with support from student ambassadors.

The areas that schools would like the conference to address are:

  • To inform and inspire young people through access to positive role models from a range of creative careers.
  • To encourage the young people to express themselves, build confidence in communication skills and understand the importance of language in achieving their goals.
  • To increase their confidence in using positive and expressive vocabulary.
  • To understand the power of all forms of communication, including body language and tone.
This is a half day event and we are looking to begin the day with an introduction, a keynote speaker and a participatory performance before breaking off into workshop groups with around 30 students per workshop, with the support of student ambassadors from the University of Bedfordshire. The fee for this work is £250 – £350 (inclusive of VAT, travel and materials). Providers who took part in last year’s event are welcome to apply again!

Please submit your brief expressions of interest and approximate costs to Ailene at by midnight on 18th February 2020.
