SHARE Fundraising Cohort 2018-19

As you may be aware, between 2014 and 2018 museums in the East of England had access to specialist fundraising training through SHARED Enterprise, an HLF-funded project.  The programme included cohort-based training, which participating museums found highly effective because it combined group workshops with specialist one-to-one support and peer networking.
 
Now that SHARED Enterprise has finished, we are offering similar cohort-based fundraising training as part of the 2018-19 SHARE training calendar.  A small number of museums will attend group workshops and receive expert one-to-one support from an experienced fundraiser.  They will learn about fundraising strategies, including a variety of fundraising methods, and they will be supported to apply their learning in the real context of their own museums. The training is worth up to £1600 per museum.
 
For more information, please see the Support pages of our website. 

Expressions of interest should be submitted to sharemuseumseast@norfolk.gov.uk no later than 5pm on Monday 1 October 2018.

New Horizons: The Arts and Children in Challenging Circumstances

Thursday 25 October, 10.30am-5pm

The Garage, Norwich

The focus of this year's New Horizons is to explore the barriers and difficulties that children in challenging circumstances face – hearing from and involving children themselves throughout, and to examine what best practice looks like, and what arts organisations need to think about in order to develop/deliver inclusive work well.

This event is a follow up to last year's really lively and energising New Horizons event that focused on arts and disability, during which we managed to crowdsource a ‘manifesto for change’ that people were able to take home with them at the end of the day. There's a similar intention this year too, so that people leave armed with a whole host of practical ‘take aways’.

Our aim is to make the event as practically useful as possible, so that delegates go away more clued up - and more fired up - and with a clear idea of what they will do differently as a result of attending.

Across the day there will be a range of provocations, conversations, and How to sessions, so that, whether you're a senior manager or a practitioner there's something of value to you.

Confirmed speakers include Nina Nannar (ITV), Rosie Millard (Children and the Arts), Dr Matthew Hill (Centre for Youth Impact), Philip Flood (Sound Connections), Jessica Middleton (Children in Need), Paul Webb (MAP), Anna Dever (Family Arts Campaign), and young people from The Garage Youth Forum and Sound Connections.

There are a limited number of 20% off Early bird tickets available.

Bursary Opportunity - Time To Stare - call for submissions

With over thirty years experience in the arts and creative industries, B&R Productions acknowledge the need for practitioners to become more resilient, more innovative and more sustainable and do so in ways that do not compromise an original passion or creative process.

“Methinks that the moment my legs begin to move, my thoughts begin to flow.”  Henry David Thoreau
 
To facilitate this, we have secured funding from ACE to launch two, annual, residential arts bursaries for the development of a specific project or work, giving small and medium sized companies and arts partnerships the time and the environment in which to take stock, develop ideas and strategy and equip themselves with the wherewithal to thrive in increasingly challenging circumstances.

The residencies accommodate up to four people (2 x 2 sharing with the option of others joining on a daily basis) for five days at The Studio in rural Three Oaks, East Sussex providing time away from the daily demands of management and delivery; time to think, to generate and explore new ideas. With a multitude of footpaths and walking routes through historic 1066 country, including coastal, wood and farmlands, participants will be facilitated and encouraged to use the natural environment.

Professionals from a variety of backgrounds form the Time To Stare Mentor and Selection Panel and each residency will include a dedicated half-day with your chosen mentor. We have brought together professionals from a variety of backgrounds to join the Time To Stare Mentor Panel in order to facilitate stimulating conversations and innovative ways of thinking, crossing inter-disciplinary barriers and encouraging creative investigations of the human condition from a wide range of perspectives. In addition, we hope that bursary recipients will be enabled to consider new contexts, platforms and ways to engage with audiences, whether this be in the public realm, through strategic partnerships and or research based enquiry.

Applications are open to small to medium sized arts organisations and individuals seeking to develop a new work or company strategy.

Closing date: October 19th  2018

The residency will take place from February 22 - 27 2019

Creative Civic Change

Creative Civic Change is a new programme to help you make positive change in your community using the arts and creativity.

We are looking to support at least 10 communities across England who are using the arts and creativity to make positive social change in their local areas. We are currently in the first phase of the programme, the ‘community call out’ phase, in which we are asking communities to express an interest in being part of the programme’s next phase - the development phase.

We will be accepting expressions of interest until 28th September 2018, after which we will select at least 10 communities to work with, helping them to develop their ideas and local plans and decide what support and funding they would need to deliver these (between £50,000 and £300,000 in each local community).

The final ‘programme delivery’ phase will start in February 2019. This will be the point at which some or all of the communities we have worked with will receive funding to deliver their plans locally.

We are interested in sharing experiences and learning from the programme to inspire others to use the arts and creativity to make positive change.

The programme is a partnership between the Big Lottery Fund, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, and Local Trust.

Live Music Tonight Cancelled - plus some old stereo stuff for sale

Norfolk Council News Feed - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 07:30

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Social Club News -  21st September- Live Music this Friday

We're very sorry, but tonight's Joe Goes Green gig is cancelled due to illness. They send their apologies and we will reschedule the gig. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

On a different note we are flogging off our ex-social club stereo stuff. It was all working when we stopped using it, but is sold as seen and has no guarantee whatsoever. But could be suitable for a lids bedroom, outdoor shed, or some such 'project'.

CANCELLED JOE GOES GREEN - Friday 21st September @ 8pm PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOW CANCELLED DUE TO ILLNESS. APOLOGIES - we will reschedule.

Joe Goes Green have been quite busy this summer playing gigs all over the county including a double slot at this years Dereham blues festival. Much more than a single-genre outfit we welcome them back to the social club with their unique blend of eclectic acoustic electric mix of astonishing covers and original material - hats and all. Starts 8pm

The Big Quiz - Friday 28th September @ 8pm

A social club institution, with cash prizes, this is a little bit more serious than the early bird quiz - but no less fun. Maximum teams of 6, and its £1 per person to enter. All the money gets given out as prize money. Also, we'll have some basic food on offer between 5pm and 7.30 - so if you fancy a nibble, some cheesy chips, or even more please come early. Or even stay after work and make a night of it...

LOOKING AHEAD to October, November and December

Don't forget we've got some good stuff planned for the rest of the year. Besides the monthly early bird quiz, big quiz, and pre home match football, we've got hot food Friday lunchtimes, our perennial 4 pints for the price of 3 (after work and before 7pm), the rock n roll club, retired members talks, various sports clubs and lots more. All for £2.50 a month!

Here are a few specials to look out for and put in your diary, in addition to our regular monthly events.

  • Rock n Roll Disco - October 6th @ 8pm
  • German Beer Night - October 19th from 4.30pm (with food)
  • Family Halloween Party - October 27th from 6pm
  • BINGO night (after early bird quiz) - November 9th @ 8pm
  • Beer Festival - Nov 21st - 24th (live music on Fri 23rd)
  • Carols up the Club - Dec 7th (after work
  • Family Christmas party - Dec 15th from 6pm
  • The Last Working Day Disco on Dec 21st

Please sign up your colleagues so they can enjoy as well. These are all FREE for social club members and their guest (including children) and are paid for out of your £2.50 a month. So the more members we have, the more we can put on! Simples"

Do you fancy taking part? Last chance to register is today (September 21st). We already have 29 people in it, so it should be a good 'un.

We'll be starting our annual pool league w/c commencing 1st October - and we'd love you to take part. The annual pool competition has been growing from strength to strength, and we currently have 3 divisions in the league. The pool matches start in Octiober, and, depending on numbers, we're planning to finish around Mid-May next year. In the competition you play an opponent once a week, over 4 frames, according to the "new" EPA rules. Frames costs 50p (put into the pool tables - we have 2 of them) so it will cost you about £1 a week. You will also be able to book the tables ahead of time once you've agreed with your opponent when to play - but only if you are taking part in the pool competition. We do have gaps during the year to allow people to catch up on frames, and if you are on hols, off sick, or on a training course we're flexible about that kind of thing. If you're interested, please email events@nccsocialclub.co.uk with POOL 2018/2019 in the subject title. Please note that the competition is only open to social club members. If you know someone who fancies joining please get them to email as well.

LOTS FOR SALE... (do you see what we did there?)

We have a reasonably large amount of stuff that we need to get rid off, and we'll be selling off by a sealed bid auction. If you want to make a bid on any of the following, please email events@nccsocialclub.co.uk with BID in the subject line (followed by whichever lot you are interested in). These speakers and stereos were fully working at the time of decommissioning, and have been kept dry, relatively warm, and indoors since then - but they have sat on our shelves for a number of years. They are being offered sold as seen, with no guarantees, no refunds, no money back and so on. Please bid accordingly. They have been well used, but also well looked after. They are extremely tatty, so please don't think these will be a suitable focal point for your newly decorated living room. However they were too good to chuck out so we're offering you first dibs. And who knows, a bit of elbow grease and some wiring and you could have a quadrophonic paradise in your shed....

Lot 1 - Sony Stereo with 2 speakers and a sub woofer.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1N8KCE9gsEmEVqXiQRIKaHqdoSKEkHJIf

If you want to google it, its a MHC-GTZ3i. Please note that the speakers are bare wire and will need to be refitted with the appropriate connections (that we cant find) but are available from the interweb and so on. Remote control missing.

Lot 2 - Sony Stereo with no speakers.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qLaQZDj_iqqx9G1oecOscQT2gxtDyY-z

This has the added advantage/feature/novelty value of having a built in cassette player. (Ask your parents!). This used to be wired up to varying combinations of the speakers we are selling separately. If you want to google it, look up MHC-EC55. Remote control missing.

Lot 3 - 1 pair of Denon speakers

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Sk4od3E5Hlo-oHwqYNP-JhwoSEsReeex

These are approx. 28cm high, 20cm deep and 19cm wide. They are 6 Ohm and rated 70 watts. Sensitivity at 1m / 1w is 87db.  (Whatever that means). Tatty.

Lot 4 - Second pair of Denon speakers

 https://drive.google.com/open?id=1eew3q0_XXXZQYD4SCzbo27L0-hLjBX0R

Same as lot 3 but even tattier. One of them has a slight dent in the corner.

Lot 5 - Pair of Jamo speakers.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nsEz0FiO3u6eYEa0TkRMCxKytAEJFEKT

These are 30cm high, 22cm deep and 19cm wide. They are 8 Ohm and rated 70 watts. (90w MP)

Lot 6 - Pair of mission speakers

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1K38G395jVwZrKCZ5Pnl9XE-RdUxYWyXs

These are 38cm high, 23cm deep and 21cm wide. We don't know what rating but they have the serial ID of 610051861 if that helps.

New childhood and family services proposals - have your say

Ambitious proposals for a new early childhood and family service have been published, that would provide more support to children and families most in need.

Norfolk County Council has launched an eight-week consultation into proposals for the new service, which could change how early childhood services are delivered to children aged 0-5 and their families.

The proposed service would:
 
• Bring the services out of the buildings and into the community, to the children and families who need them the most.
• Help communities and parents offer local activities and groups.
• Make it easier for families to access the information and advice they need, through providing better joined up online and digital services.
• Change how we work to make sure we deliver in the best way for today’s families.

Cllr Penny Carpenter, Chairman of the Children’s Services Committee at Norfolk County Council, said:
“We want to get the right help to children and families as early as possible and create services that are fit for today’s families."

Have your say at http://www.norfolk.gov.uk/childrenscentres

A smart way of promoting independence

A “smart flat” is being developed by the county council and a local charity, to highlight how technology can help older and vulnerable people live independent lives.

More than 7,000 people in Norfolk are already using a range of devices, to help them live independently.

Known as 'assistive technology', the equipment ranges from the widely available Amazon Echo to specialist devices, which can tell if someone has fallen over or left their house.

Cllr Bill Borrett, Chairman of the Adult Social Care Committee, said: “This is a very exciting development. Most people want to live in their own homes for as long as possible – and, increasingly, technology can make the difference.”

Adult social services is working with a charity, Rotary House for the Deaf, to open the “smart flat” in King Street, Norwich, later this year.

Walking and Cycling Festival has arrived

Norfolk County Council’s Annual Walking and Cycling Festival is a brilliant celebration of the many paths, trails and routes the county has to offer. 

The festival, to be held in October, is ‘hosted’ by one Norfolk Trail each year. This time it’s the Marriott’s Way; a 26-mile former Victorian railway line stretching from Norwich to Aylsham, which is open to walkers, cyclists, horse riders and most mobility scooters. 

Not all the activity is on the host trail though as Walk Cromer is also a partner, and there will be events right across the county, including three confirmed events each at Sheringham Park and Felbrigg Estate. 

Residents asked to help shape local sport

If you live in East Norfolk, Active Norfolk and Great Yarmouth Borough Council would like to hear from you.

They are conducting a public survey that will form part of the development plans for the Wellesley Football Ground, the Marina Centre, and other sports and recreation facilities across the Borough.

You can pick up a hard copy of the questionnaire along with a freepost envelope at several locations in the area, or complete it online at www.great-yarmouth.gov.uk/have-your-say.

The survey is open until 12 October, so don’t miss this chance to have your say!

Stoptober

Are you a smoker but considering using e-cigarettes? Why not make the switch this Stoptober? E-cigarettes are 95% less harmful than cigarettes and have shown to be a useful tool to quit smoking.

If you do choose to switch to an e-cigarette, Stop Smoking Services can still support you in your quit attempt.

If you would like support to quit smoking or discuss your quitting options, Smokefree Norfolk can be contacted on 0800 0854113 or through the website http://www.smokefreenorfolk.nhs.uk/

Alternatively head along to your local pharmacy/GP.

SHARE Fundraising Cohort 2018-19

As you may be aware, between 2014 and 2018 museums in the East of England had access to specialist fundraising training through SHARED Enterprise, an HLF-funded project.  The programme included cohort-based training, which participating museums found highly effective because it combined group workshops with specialist one-to-one support and peer networking.
 
Now that SHARED Enterprise has finished, we are offering similar cohort-based fundraising training as part of the 2018-19 SHARE training calendar.  A small number of museums will attend group workshops and receive expert one-to-one support from an experienced fundraiser.  They will learn about fundraising strategies, including a variety of fundraising methods, and they will be supported to apply their learning in the real context of their own museums. The training is worth up to £1600 per museum.
 
For more information, please see the Support pages of our website.  Expressions of interest should be submitted to sharemuseumseast@norfolk.gov.uk no later than 5pm on Monday 1 October 2018.

New Horizons: The Arts and Children in Challenging Circumstances

Thursday 25 October, 10.30am-5pm

The Garage, Norwich

The focus of this year's New Horizons is to explore the barriers and difficulties that children in challenging circumstances face – hearing from and involving children themselves throughout, and to examine what best practice looks like, and what arts organisations need to think about in order to develop/deliver inclusive work well.

This event is a follow up to last year's really lively and energising New Horizons event that focused on arts and disability, during which we managed to crowdsource a ‘manifesto for change’ that people were able to take home with them at the end of the day. There's a similar intention this year too, so that people leave armed with a whole host of practical ‘take aways’.

Our aim is to make the event as practically useful as possible, so that delegates go away more clued up - and more fired up - and with a clear idea of what they will do differently as a result of attending.

Across the day there will be a range of provocations, conversations, and How to sessions, so that, whether you're a senior manager or a practitioner there's something of value to you.

Confirmed speakers include Nina Nannar (ITV), Rosie Millard (Children and the Arts), Dr Matthew Hill (Centre for Youth Impact), Philip Flood (Sound Connections), Jessica Middleton (Children in Need), Paul Webb (MAP), Anna Dever (Family Arts Campaign), and young people from The Garage Youth Forum and Sound Connections.

There are a limited number of 20% off Early bird tickets available.

Funding Opportunities Bursary Opportunity - Time To Stare - call for submissions

With over thirty years experience in the arts and creative industries, B&R Productions acknowledge the need for practitioners to become more resilient, more innovative and more sustainable and do so in ways that do not compromise an original passion or creative process.

“Methinks that the moment my legs begin to move, my thoughts begin to flow.”  Henry David Thoreau
 
To facilitate this, we have secured funding from ACE to launch two, annual, residential arts bursaries for the development of a specific project or work, giving small and medium sized companies and arts partnerships the time and the environment in which to take stock, develop ideas and strategy and equip themselves with the wherewithal to thrive in increasingly challenging circumstances.

The residencies accommodate up to four people (2 x 2 sharing with the option of others joining on a daily basis) for five days at The Studio in rural Three Oaks, East Sussex providing time away from the daily demands of management and delivery; time to think, to generate and explore new ideas. With a multitude of footpaths and walking routes through historic 1066 country, including coastal, wood and farmlands, participants will be facilitated and encouraged to use the natural environment.

Professionals from a variety of backgrounds form the Time To Stare Mentor and Selection Panel and each residency will include a dedicated half-day with your chosen mentor. We have brought together professionals from a variety of backgrounds to join the Time To Stare Mentor Panel in order to facilitate stimulating conversations and innovative ways of thinking, crossing inter-disciplinary barriers and encouraging creative investigations of the human condition from a wide range of perspectives. In addition, we hope that bursary recipients will be enabled to consider new contexts, platforms and ways to engage with audiences, whether this be in the public realm, through strategic partnerships and or research based enquiry.

Applications are open to small to medium sized arts organisations and individuals seeking to develop a new work or company strategy.

Closing date: October 19th  2018

The residency will take place from February 22 - 27 2019

We are looking to support at least 10 communities across England who are using the arts and creativity to make positive social change in their local areas. We are currently in the first phase of the programme, the ‘community call out’ phase, in which we are asking communities to express an interest in being part of the programme’s next phase - the development phase.

We will be accepting expressions of interest until 28th September 2018, after which we will select at least 10 communities to work with, helping them to develop their ideas and local plans and decide what support and funding they would need to deliver these (between £50,000 and £300,000 in each local community).

The final ‘programme delivery’ phase will start in February 2019. This will be the point at which some or all of the communities we have worked with will receive funding to deliver their plans locally.

We are interested in sharing experiences and learning from the programme to inspire others to use the arts and creativity to make positive change.

The programme is a partnership between the Big Lottery Fund, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, and Local Trust.
