The following is a message and opportunity from the National Trust team at Castle Drogo:

'Castle Drogo wishes to appoint a socially engaged creative practitioner to work with them in 2017-2018 during the final phase of a major building conservation project. This is an opportunity to be part of a unique and ambitious project culminating in the creation of new work for display from March 2018. We want to work collaboratively to help us develop the next stage of our exciting interpretative plans, exploring new ways of looking at and thinking about the architecture, design, craftsmanship and stories of Castle Drogo.

The budget is £14,000 and is expected to cover all fees including any production and installation costs, travel and accommodation expenses. The deadline for submitting an Expression of Interest is Friday 11 August 2017.

Embryonic urban sketching group in Exeter. If you are interested in meeting others to have a coffee and sketch around Exeter, outside if we can but somewhere inside if the weather isn't good (have been known to stay in pub all morning...), then do come along.

Hope to see you

Sound and Music Forum

Exeter Phoenix, The Workshop, 6.30pm

Chaired by Simon (Notes by Mariko North – apologies in advance for spelling errors, unclarity etc)


Around 18 people turned up to the 2nd Sound and Music Forum


Whilst introducing ourselves, the point was made that one important aspect of getting audiences for gigs and events that we are putting on is to let each other know when we are doing things, and in turn support each other by showing up.

UPCOMING EVENTS: Tom Matthews (sound engineer) would like to get the word out that he is involved in the 2017 Exeter Street Arts Festival which will take place on Saturday the 26th of August throughout central Exeter (Princesshay, the High Street, Phoenix Centre – including an after party). Musicians welcome to get in touch.…

Posted by Martin Thomas on July 19, 2017 at 16:30 0 Comments

Dear Exeter Cultural Partnership members,

The following is an update on current developments and plans for the future of the partnership.  Jay Milling, Chair of ECP since 2014 has stepped down and everyone in Exeter Cultural Partnership will want to extend their appreciation to Jay for all his hard work over the last few years. On a personal note, I also want to express how Jay has been very supportive and how much I have enjoyed working with him.

I am pleased to let you know that Nikki Sved, Artistic Director of Theatre Alibi was elected as Interim Chair by ECP Steering Group members at the latest meeting on 17 July. Nikki will remain in role until a Governance Review has been conducted over the next few months.

The Governance Review will be put out to tender shortly and the brief for this work will be posted here. It is intended that this will set the plans for a more robust model of governance for ECP, provide a framework…


Exeter City Council Arts & Events Review - comments invited

Posted by Martin Thomas on July 18, 2017 at 9:00 8 Comments

Message from Exter City Council regarding proposals for City Council Arts & Events.

The following is a message from Victoria Hatfield, Economy & Enterprise Manager, inviting comment from ECP members:

Val Wilson, Exeter City Council's City Arts & Events Manager is retiring at the end of March 2018, which will be a great loss to the City Council and especially Exeter. Over the previous couple of years Val has managed and delivered two major events that has had a significant impact on the city, as well as continuing with the day job in supporting the arts community within and surrounding Exeter….a commendable achievement.

Val’s retirement is providing Exeter City Council with an opportunity to re-look at how we deliver / manage / co-ordinate arts, culture and events across the city. The proposal, which would be implemented March 2018 is:

  • The management of the team going forward will come under Jon-Paul…
