Description

Winter Dance Off...Salsa North West present a winter multi-national dance off… and you’re needed!

Evoque – 8th December 7-11pm

Pay What You Think

All money goes to the artists

Preston’s communities are getting together to celebrate their fantastic contribution to Lancashire Encounter and the wide range of Preston’s arts and culture activity.

We want you to join us, to celebrate this, and to g et your voice heard about the future for Arts & Culture in Preston by adding your thoughts to a project called Creative Constellations, by Preston Creative Partnership. Everyone’s invited!

The 8th December will see a range of multinational dancers and musicians from Preston, by way of Poland, Columbia, and Jamaica.

The event is supported by Preston Creative Partnership, a collective working together and alongside strategic city partners to provide a strong voice for the independent arts and creative sector in Preston, and hosting a programme of activity to help develop the sector.

They want as many people who are involved with arts – from different community and professional organisations – to come along, network, share your thoughts on what’s needed to grow opportunities, and find out more about their Creative Constellations activity.

Over the next 6 months, Preston Creative Partnership will be on a mission to find out about what’s happening in arts & cultural sector and will be providing opportunities to work together to help develop Preston’s vibrant arts scene. After our public launch of the partnership at Lancashire Encounter 2016, the Winter Dance Off is the first in a series of events that will get people talking about what’s next for Preston.

This will include Dinner pArty, a networking event for artists, creatives, and businesses, a trip to Hull, to find out how they became City of Culture 2017, a professional development programme, & small commission opportunities. We’re also creating a map of Preston’s creative and arts assets – that means people, buildings, businesses – let’s make some noise about creative Preston!

Creative Constellations, is funded by Arts Council England and runs until Summer 2017.
