Seminar: November 2009
West Bromwich, West Midlands

We are looking for enthusiastic and curious activists and researchers,
architects, artists, designers, planners, to participate in a seminar in
November 2009 to kick off the black country creative advantage. With this
two-year initiative we aim to investigate through collective reflection and
action how arts practices can relate to or impact upon regeneration
practices to support a more democratic involvement of local people in
culture, public planning and developments where they live. We are looking
for participants who are both interested in gaining and sharing critical
understandings of the politics of regeneration, in particular cultural and
artistic initiatives, and in the development of practical interventions in a
specific regeneration context in the Black Country area of the West

The black country creative advantage is a partnership between the Centre for
Art, Design, Research and Experimentation [CADRE] at the University of
Wolverhampton, and the arts organisation Multistory based in West Bromwich.

The exact date of the seminar will be arranged with selected participants.
We will cover travel and accommodation and provide a flat fee of £100 per
