This March, all RSA Fellows with an interest in culture, heritage and the arts is invited to the second Scottish Borders Cultural Forum of 2019.
The Cultural Forum supports the work of the local cultural sector by creating a space for networking, sharing concerns, ideas and resources and finding solutions to common problems. The forum is an informal event, offering a chance to network and find out about projects and initiatives.
There will be some introductory remarks on 2019 being International Year of Indigent Languages. Then the Cultural Forum will start with short presentations to stimulate discussion and questions, followed by a chance to discuss any topics relating to culture, upcoming events of projects. There will also be an update from last month’s Cultural Forum in Galashiels too. See more information on each of the speakers by below, and full event details on the Eventbrite page.
