Creative Industries Manifesto

While talent and creativity can be found everywhere, access to the money, markets and networks needed to succeed cannot. The result is lost opportunities for individuals and communities as well as a cost to the national economy.
This 10-point manifesto outlines our statement of intent, and aims to drive inclusive growth and innovation across towns, cities and rural areas, in every nation and region throughout the UK. It builds on the landmark Creative Industries Sector Deal, agreed by government with the Creative Industries Council working with the Creative Industries Federation and others.

Have your say... Freedom of expression? - Arts Professional 

For many years ArtsProfessional has been reporting incidents that cast doubt on the extent to which the cultural sector is free to speak out on issues that matter. Are these isolated examples? Or the tip of an iceberg?

This short Pulse survey will gather evidence about the type of pressures facing artists and arts professionals in their working lives, and any ways in which they feel their freedom of expression is curtailed. We want to learn more about experiences of censorship and self-censorship, and how cultural sector workers feel about challenging the status quo or presenting an alternative view.
As with all our Pulse surveys this one is completely confidential.

Complete our survey and we’ll report back in the New Year.

The New Anglia LEP Apprenticeship Levy Transfer

The New Anglia LEP Apprenticeship Levy Transfer programme allows firms to allocate some or all of their unspent levy to a virtual pot. These funds can then be transferred to support the training needs of SMEs across Norfolk and Suffolk. Any preferred use of funds – certain apprenticeship standards, sectors or locations – can be identified by the firm allocating their levy to the scheme.
New Anglia LEP, in partnership with Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils, works with companies wanting to receive funds towards the cost of training. The LEP will make an introduction and if all parties, including the training provider are happy with the match, funds can be transferred.
The Economic Strategy for Norfolk and Suffolk underlines our ambitions to drive inclusion and skills for everyone in our region. This includes developing new approaches and removing barriers to get people into and back into work, delivering the Youth Pledge for all our young people and integrating the skills offer for businesses.

Museums Association: Statement On The Impact Of A No Deal Brexit

The UK government and politicians of all parties should take all necessary action to avoid a no-deal Brexit, the Museums Association (MA) said in a statement today.
The association said that leaving the EU without a deal would “have a highly damaging impact on: the communities that museums serve, people who work in and with museums, and the sharing of collections, ideas and expertise across European borders”.
It said that the economic damage caused by a no-deal Brexit would “have a damaging and divisive impact on many communities that museums serve”.
The statement continued: “The UK’s museums sector is already in a fragile financial position after a decade of austerity and could struggle with the substantial financial losses that could arise from loss of earned income, philanthropy and public funding in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

A huge thank you to our incredibly inspiring and insightful guest speakers; Jo McIntyre, Sara Kirkpatrick, Ippo Panteloudakis, David Stothard, Celia Peachy, Liz Hadcroft, Julia Sandel and last but definitely not least Claire Throssell.

Many of you may not be aware of the personal journey that Christen, our brilliant co-ordinator in North, East and Broadland has been on since finding out that she has a BRCA gene mutation. She is due to go into hospital in 2 weeks time for a preventative double mastectomy. She has recently started a Vlog to raise awareness of BRCA and share her experiences to help others.

It is a really good watch and can be found here

Please support her by subscribing to her channel and liking her posts, you can also follow her on Instagram and Twitter @BRCAchatter 

Christen; "Due to our funding coming to an end in March, I am not sure whether I will be back in this role properly before the project end. I have loved this job so much. I cannot express enough how proud I am to have been part of this team, raising awareness of Domestic Abuse across Norfolk. I have met such incredible, inspiring professionals along this journey. We've made a huge amount of progress in Norfolk - let's continue raising awareness of DA so victims don't have to suffer in silence."

They were inspired by our event in February in response to Kerri McAuley's homicide.

For more information click here National News Grace Millane Murder Trial

Grace Milane, a UK backpacker who was travelling the world, was murdered on her 22nd Birthday in New Zealand by Jesse Kempson on a first date.

Kempson stated she died as an accident during consensual sex. After her death he took photos of her, watched porn and buried her in a woodland. He then went on a date with another woman the next evening. Her killer informed police that he had showered after sex with Grace and assumed she had left the apartment, he found her body on the floor next to the bed the next morning. This case has gained global attention with many in shock at the defendants side of the story.

There has a been a huge increase in defendants claiming "rough sex gone wrong" as manslaughter (see August 2019 edition) There is a brilliant website to help campaign against this:

We Can't Consent to This   Contact Details (or link to article) Office of National Statistics - Domestic Abuse Figures

The most recent domestic abuse statistics have been released by ONS. The statistics state that little has changed in relation to numbers. March 18-19; 2.4million victims (1.6mil women and 786,00 men). There were 746,219 recorded DA related crimes, which is a 24% rise compared to last year, which is thought to be due to increased reporting. There was approximately a 32% arrest rate for crimes and 74% charge rate.

From BBC News:

"Domestic violence, family conflict and drink and drug abuse are the biggest drivers of the rise in child-protection cases in England, says the Local Government Association (LGA).

The organisation representing English councils has surveyed the councillors in charge of children's services about the causes of a 53% rise in child-protection cases over the past decade.

More than 80% identified domestic violence and substance misuse as being behind the increased numbers in their local authorities."

Thousands have been protesting in Spain after 5 men were cleared of raping an unconscious 14 year old girl. How? Because she did not struggle or fight back, and they did not use violence or intimidation. The court stated the 14 year old "could not accept or reject the sexual relations". Protesters are campaigning to not only change the law, but to ensure judges have a better understanding of gender issues. #EnoughPatriarchalJustice

From BBC: "A teenager stabbed his ex-girlfriend repeatedly in the neck in a "frenzied attack" before trying to make it appear her wounds were self-inflicted.

Thomas Griffiths admitted murdering Ellie Gould, 17, at her home in Calne, Wiltshire, in May, after she ended their relationship.

Griffiths, now aged 18, went to the schoolgirl's home, killed her and then left her hand on the knife handle".

Read more here Women Fight Back: Russia

Many of you will be aware that Russia decriminlised domestic abuse a couple of years ago, resulting in lesser sentences for perpetrators and less safety for victims. An amazing woman Margarita Gracheva is heading a campaign to fight for justice. Gracheva reported her abusive husband to the police, who dropped the case due to lack of evidence (she had injuries from a physical assault). After the charges were dropped her husband went on to cut off both her hands. Gracheva did not want to go public with her story, but felt this was the only way for her abuser to receive a proper sentence. She has also since written a book "Happy without Hands". 

Read more about Margarita and campaigns of other Russian women here.  Stalking Victims Allowed to Challenge Sentences

From BBC News: 

"Victims of stalking, harassment and sex crimes will be able to challenge sentences they think are too lenient, under an expansion of a government scheme in England and Wales.

Fourteen offences are to be added to the unduly lenient sentence scheme , which examines crown court punishments."

The guide has a "focus on family law, including why the law was necessary, the problems facing victims when utilising legislation, risk assessment of victims, the link between coercive control and stalking, protective orders available for victims, legal aid, and how coercive control is relevant to family court proceedings".

BEER FESTIVAL LAST NIGHT - Special Offer Tonight

Norfolk Council News Feed - Sat, 11/23/2019 - 12:15

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

Beer Festival Last Night - Special Offer Tonight

The beer festival is nearly over, and tonight is our last night

Last night we had New Town Velocity to the social club. It was busy, the music was great, and thanks to Helen and Angie for providing some lovely food.

Tonight is 'Sup Up Saturday'. We have 12 of the 14 ales left, all in great condition. However, as is always the case, anything that isn't drunk by today will have to be thrown away as the function room is used for lots of things other than the beer festival. That is a terrible waste, so to try and avoid as much of that as we can, we are reducing the price this evening to £2 a pint for the beers on gravity. And we will have take home containers as well. To be clear - the beers are in great condition, but we'd rather sell them cheap to our members and their guests than throw them away.

Tonight is also the last chance to get your card stamped and claim a free t-shirt, and if the beer you need becomes unavailable you can nominate another in its place, so in some ways its a bit easier. We will have a small selection of nibbles available for you, but by all means order in a take away if you fancy it.

Whilst we hope you enjoy / have enjoyed the 14 specially selected ales we have on, the food, the music and the games, please enjoy yourself responsibly. Thanks to all involved and enjoy the last night.

We're always keen for new members, its only £2.50 a month to join.

you can always see our events calendar at anytime on www.nccsocialclub.co.uk/events

Join up. Join in. Do something different. SOCIAL CLUB BEER FESTIVAL Wednesday 20th November to Saturday 23rd November

The beer festival is underway, with the usual wide range of crackingly  good beers, with some old friends and new included. With only today and tomorrow left, its time to knuckle down and earn those free T-shirts. And with live music on tonight there really is no excuse. No queues to get in, free entry, some genuinely top-notch beers and the usual social club great value prices. £2.80 a pint for ALL festival beers.

You can download the tasting notes here

You can download the beer festival programme here

NB - popular beers will get finished before others (as has already happened with one) or beers may not be in tip-top condition. In these cases you can pick another beer and still claim the 'missing' stamp towards your t-shirt - the ultimate badge of honour.

Sup Up Saturday@ the beer festival

Saturday evening is the traditional drinking up night - last chance to get those last stamps for the free T-shirt, try your favourite ales again, and so on, we'll also have some cold snacks available - or feel free to order in a take away.

Rather than throwing good beer away, we'd rather sell it to our members and their guests, so tonight all beer on gravity will be £2 a pint (or £1 a half). Its all in top condition, but we'd rather you drink it then we chuck it.

 

AVON SALE Tuesday 26th November 12-2pm

Have your say... Freedom of expression? - Arts Professional 

For many years ArtsProfessional has been reporting incidents that cast doubt on the extent to which the cultural sector is free to speak out on issues that matter. Are these isolated examples? Or the tip of an iceberg?

This short Pulse survey will gather evidence about the type of pressures facing artists and arts professionals in their working lives, and any ways in which they feel their freedom of expression is curtailed. We want to learn more about experiences of censorship and self-censorship, and how cultural sector workers feel about challenging the status quo or presenting an alternative view.
As with all our Pulse surveys this one is completely confidential.

Complete our survey and we’ll report back in the New Year.

The New Anglia LEP Apprenticeship Levy Transfer

The New Anglia LEP Apprenticeship Levy Transfer programme allows firms to allocate some or all of their unspent levy to a virtual pot. These funds can then be transferred to support the training needs of SMEs across Norfolk and Suffolk. Any preferred use of funds – certain apprenticeship standards, sectors or locations – can be identified by the firm allocating their levy to the scheme.
New Anglia LEP, in partnership with Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils, works with companies wanting to receive funds towards the cost of training. The LEP will make an introduction and if all parties, including the training provider are happy with the match, funds can be transferred.
The Economic Strategy for Norfolk and Suffolk underlines our ambitions to drive inclusion and skills for everyone in our region. This includes developing new approaches and removing barriers to get people into and back into work, delivering the Youth Pledge for all our young people and integrating the skills offer for businesses.

Museums Association: Statement On The Impact Of A No Deal Brexit

The UK government and politicians of all parties should take all necessary action to avoid a no-deal Brexit, the Museums Association (MA) said in a statement today.
The association said that leaving the EU without a deal would “have a highly damaging impact on: the communities that museums serve, people who work in and with museums, and the sharing of collections, ideas and expertise across European borders”.
It said that the economic damage caused by a no-deal Brexit would “have a damaging and divisive impact on many communities that museums serve”.
The statement continued: “The UK’s museums sector is already in a fragile financial position after a decade of austerity and could struggle with the substantial financial losses that could arise from loss of earned income, philanthropy and public funding in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
