Artventure 2019

A huge thank you to everyone who attended our AGM on the 4th March 2019 and special thanks to Eilidh Whiteford for facilitating the Open Space session. We gained new members, discussed the issues and challenges artists face locally, and shared ideas and solutions to these barriers.

One action from the AGM is to merge the Peterhead Arts and Cultural Network/Hub with Artventure. This is in order to not duplicate the efforts by either group and that there is a lot of overlap regarding each group’s aims and objectives:

Artventure was set up with the mission of working with the communities of Peterhead to

  • Stimulate and enable the development of cultural activities
  • Promote, support and sustain our cultural identity
  • Celebrate our cultural heritage

The Peterhead Arts and Cultural Events were set up to focus on a cultural/arts network/hub with specific aims and objectives, including:

  • Growing participation in activities and connecting the community through culture & arts
  • Promoting local culture, arts and heritage
  • Understanding community needs and issues
  • Supporting groups and leadership

In addition to the overlap, there are various benefits of merging both groups under the Artventure name including:

  • Both memberships attending less meetings
  • Both memberships being able to network with more people
  • Both memberships providing new perspectives and ideas to the other
  • Arts/Culture Network having a larger network of members/supporters and attendees
  • Artventure is a constituted group, so the rules for meetings, memberships, etc have already been established
  • Artventure has a bank account, making applying for funding easier
  • Artventure has a recognisable identity/branding including social media

At the AGM, meetings for the rest of 2019 were scheduled for the following dates, all taking place from 6pm to 8pm:

  • 15th April
  • 27th May
  • 8th July
  • 26th August
  • 7th October
  • 9th December

If you weren’t able to attend but are interested in becoming a member, attending future meetings or in local arts & culture in Peterhead and the surrounding area, please e-mail info@artventure.org.uk
