It was a great opportunity for all partners to share practice and gain updated information about the research, discuss findings from the first Master-class (London, February 2014) and to go through the dissemination strategy/plans on project promotion. We also managed to visit the derelict Paper Mill where Prostor Plus have been given a space to inhabit with artists and cultural activities and met with key local activists and politicians involved in managing the site.
The next step is that each individual partner will prepare for their assessment visits over June to September taking place with Denise Stanley, Keith Gilles, Enzo Pellegrini and David Garcia. The Collage Arts team are compiling a video to assist partners to prepare their Proficient (Level 7) trainers for these visits.
The next partner management meeting and second Master-class has been confirmed as Wednesday 12th to Friday 14th November in London. This has been timed to coincide with the Chocolate Factory N22 Open Studios 2014 at Collage Arts in Wood Green.
