Last year Dr Annette Naudin from BCU led the assessment for our pilot initiative RE:Present which sought to transform the diversity of Birmingham's cultural leadership. This year she is joining us again to evaluate ASTONish. This will help us to see how the project is being effective in our aim of developing a diverse group of cultural and creative leaders and entrepreneurs who will be able to create high quality art within their community creating both high quality cultural experiences for audiences but equally to create a cultural ecology within Aston and Newtown
We are delighted that BCU are working with us again to assess the project!
Annette has recently written about this experience and her hopes for the new project here - http://impact.bcmcr.org/2017/05/09/from-represent-to-astonish/
