Community Arts Partnership – PICAS project – Charo Lanao delivered an Intercultural Arts Training for the Arts Council NI on Thursday 29th November

CAP’s PICAS Co-ordinator, Charo Lanao-Madden delivered a very successful Intercultural Arts Training for the Arts Council NI’s arts officers at their new premises in Lisburn, on Thursday 29th November.

Participants said:

‘I would like to thank you all – Charo, Nora and Sheena for an enlivening day of discussion and challenging of ideas, its so important not to get complacent about these issues and great to work alongside colleagues questioning what we think we know and how we can help promote intercultural work through the arts council – that it isn’t just up to one team.’

The shared lunch aspect is important and all should be involved.

I found it hard to sit all day for long periods of time.

An outside venue would be better to avoid people leaving for other tasks in the office.

The Programme for InterCultural Arts Support (PICAS) is a new CAP programme offering a range of opportunities to support the delivery of key areas of the Arts Council Intercultural Arts Strategy.
