E-newsletter 13 December 2012

Lots of news and updates from both the CFBA and the wider sector.

Minutes of our Christmas meeting held on 6 December at The Holburne Museum
Thank you to those who attended, and wasn’t it a lovely evening! James Runcie’s talk was very interesting and the 2013 Lit Fest is going to be fantastic. And to enjoy getting together in such an impressive setting was a treat indeed – thank you, Holburne! Here are the minutes.Reminders
Thinking Big will now take place at The Guildhall on 24th April next year. Moving the date has enabled us to plan the event with a longer build-up, reaching more students and attracting a wider range of speakers and participants.  We will let you know the details and how you can join in, very soon.
G4A Application
We are making an application to Grants For the Arts for funds to support a short but intensive period of research and planning in the new year to create a new business plan for the CFBA.  Working with key partners in B&NES, this new plan will identify a more diverse range of funding and income sources as well as developing the range of services and support we can offer to members.
