The Fellows’ Borders and MCICH Networks invite you to an informal catch up and brainstorm.
Now that the constraints of the last year are easing, the Fellows’ Borders and MCICH Networks extend a warm welcome to RSA Fellows and guests to attend an informal gathering to discuss issues around arts, creative industries, culture and heritage, with a view to possible event planning for MCICH events in the second half of the year, as well as any topical issues of interest. The invitation is of course extended to members of any arts and heritage groups across the Borders including CABN. Tea and biscuits will be available on arrival, and the taking of a lateral flow test before attending is encouraged.
The Trinity Centre is immediately adjacent the Episcopal Church. Parking is in Ormiston Terrace or further north in High Cross Avenue itself. There is both a northbound and southbound bus stop outside the Trinity Centre (served by Borders Buses 60, 67 and 68). All buses go to Galashiels Interchange for the rail connection; some link to it at Tweedbank Station.
There is a further meeting on 16th March for which a separate registration is required. This meeting, in addition to MCICH and Borders issues, will also consider issues of interest to the RSA Fellows’ Rural + Environmental Issues Network Scotland. It provides Fellows and guests to feed event ideas to the Networks’ Virtual Steering Groups.
Taking part in RSA in-person events
We've been looking forward to finally being able to meet together in person. But of course recognise it is important for us to stay cautious and make the environment safe for everyone.
We aim to have assurances from all venues that they will have basic COVID-safety processes in place.
We’re asking all attendees of events to be respectful of personal space, to be mindful of others preferences in regards to social distancing and to respect those that are wearing face coverings.
To participate in the event, you will need to register for a ticket so we can make sure we have an up-to-date list of those who plan on attending. This is for capacity purposes.
We request that all attendees evaluate their own health and that of those they’re in close contact with. We encourage all attendees that are sick or showing symptoms of illness to stay home and to cancel your Eventbrite ticket if you are no longer able to join the event.
Given the ever-changing nature of the pandemic, please always check your latest national Government guidance in addition to following our baseline guidance enclosed here. If guidelines do change, the event may be cancelled at short notice.
If you have any questions, or to let us know of any access requirements or reasonable adjustments you require, please email: [email protected]
