Creative Conversations Renfrewshire: how to be more accessible and grow your group


Sat 6 May 2017, 10:00 – 13:30



The Tannahill Centre, 76 Blackstoun Road, Paisley, PA3 1NT


This Voluntary Arts Festival event invites voluntary-run creative groups and projects from Renfrewshire to come together, for a lively and informative session that will share guidance on how to improve access to your activities.

This event coordinated by Voluntary Arts Scotland, in partnership with Engage Renfrewshire and the Renfrewshire Access Panel, will:

  • Share information on the support and resources available from Voluntary Arts Scotland, Engage Renfrewshire and the Renfrewshire Access Panel

  • Facilitate a discussion on how to make your activities more accessible and boost engagement with your group

  • Give you the chance to network and meet other creative groups/projects and local organisations that you can add to your contact list

  • Update you on events taking place in Renfrewshire as part of the Voluntary Arts Festival

There will be lots of hand-outs on the day aimed at helping you grow your group, plus refreshments throughout and a FREE buffet lunch at the end of the session (1.30pm), with an opportunity to stay on and network until 2.30pm. Please note: this venue is fully accessible.



This event is free but places are limited, with this in mind we ask that a maximum of two volunteers from any one group register to attend.
