#GettingBackOutdoors Webinar for Venues & Organisations (online) back to all events

In response to Covid-19, many cultural, business and public sector organisations are looking at presenting arts and cultural activities outdoors. If you are wondering how to animate and populate streets, courtyards, parks, squares and shopping areas we are here to offer some guidance and advice. This is also a great opportunity to re-engage with audiences and local communities in these open-air settings.  

This webinar will be useful for organisations which are looking for advice on programming and safely presenting outdoor events, from light nights to street festivals, rural installations to pyrotechnic installations, perhaps for the first time.    

If you are a cultural venue such as a theatre, arts centre or museum, a Local Authority, BID (Business Improvement District), CPP (Creative People & Places project) or other organisation interested in the benefits and practicalities presenting arts out in the public realm, we’re here to help you get outdoors.
