Join us for 'Creativity and place', our first “in-person” event this year. 

We want to explore the role that arts and creativity can play in helping us understand a place, its past, its present and its future. Through a number of speakers and case studies we will explore examples of how arts and creativity give us insight into the places in which we live and work. We ask the question: with such an important tool to helping us understand who and where we are, how can we best use it to inform the future plans for where we live?  

As usual, we will start with informal networking and refreshments from 6.30pm-7pm. Please come along to meet other local Fellows and guests, to listen, and contribute!


6.30pm - 7.00pm Teas/coffees and networking

7.00pm -7.10pm Welcome and introductions

7.10pm - 8.10pm We will begin with a short video from Rob Hopkins, author of From What Is to What If: unleashing the power of imagination to create the future we want.

Followed by a panel discussion with: 

  • Charlotte Moreton FRSA - Chase & Chalke Landscape Partnership, working with local communities to better connect people with local landscapes, history and culture.
  • Sara Dudman - Artist working with Chase & Chalke with her Unearthing project (by video) 
  • Emma Gascoigne - Well-City Salisbury a project that connects people to the arts, to heritage, to our local area, to the landscape and to each other.
  • James Gough FRSA - Cultural consultant working in culture and place making 

8.10pm – 8.20pm Break

8.20pm – 9.00pm Discussion and close

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]
