The Norfolk Arts Forum summer summit at the John Innes Institute brings together delegates from 350 organisations across the county to look at how more people can be encouraged to engage in the arts.
Heading up the programme of hands-on workshops is a session on volunteering and young people, hosted by The Garage performing arts centre in Chapelfield North and V-Team, a youth volunteering scheme run by Norfolk and Norwich Voluntary Services.
Further workshops and keynote speeches, themed around arts volunteering, will also be held throughout the day, led by organisations including Creative Arts East, City College, Norwich, and Norfolk Arts Partnership, highlighting the rich mix of arts activity already on offer across the county.
Mari Martin, head of arts at Norfolk County Council, said: “We boast an incredibly vibrant and diverse arts sector in Norfolk, and the Norfolk Arts Forum plays a vital part in maintaining that 'buzz'.
“Not only does it help to raise the profile of the county's arts, it strengthens its infrastructure, shares valuable information and gives a powerful voice to organisations both small and large.”
