BYC Suggest-

Working in partnership youth arts and cultural organisations

are invited to create joint publicity packs to go out to secondary

schools. Different representatives will rotate to take them along

and promote all of the current work.

Opportunity to showcase current work and bring it to life with

music, dance etc.

Contacts of interested yp would be gathered.

Potential for a pack to be given to teachers as a separate thing.

Meeting to be held to specifically plan this and to present our

organisations to each other so we know what we’re talking


B.fest year 3

Theme is “A place for young people”

Marketing group will have more links with the Brighton Fringe

them and perhaps work experience etc.

The marketing group may have enough numbers to split into sub

groups this year.
