Join us in the beautiful surroundings of the iconic Tudor manor house Little Moreton Hall, for the second wider cultural partner networking event.
In this session, all about creative partnerships, you will have a guided tour of the new Sleepwalk installation part of the fascinating How We Used To Sleep project between the University of Manchester and the National Trust’s Little Moreton Hall, designed and installed by one of the Slant core partners Wild Rumpus.
You will also hear a short talk from Robin Rimbaud, Scanner, on his new sound and aromatic installation The Dreamer is Still Asleep, also part of the 'How We Used to Sleep' programme. Visitors can expect a sonic experience where voices, music, footsteps and glasses clinking together merge with a musical ambience to create an atmospheric and cinematic experience.
These breif talks & tours will be then followed by a short training and discussion session on creative partnerships with help from National Trust, Wild Rumpus and the Cultural Economy team from Cheshire East Council. Refreshments and networking to finish.
As part of Slant, Cheshire's angle on culture, funded by the Arts Council. The aim of the Cultural Destinations project and fund is to enable arts and culture organisations working in partnership with destination organisations to increase their reach, engagement and resilience through working with the tourism sector. Closer working between the two sectors will contribute to the economic growth of the cultural and tourism visitor economies.
