Claire Mcdermott - Cultivating Culture Symposium 18th March 2014 Keynote Speaker

The Keynote speaker at the Cultivating Culture Symposium on Tuesday 18th March will be Claire McDermott, Cultural Programmer for City of Culture 2013 in Derry~Londonderry. She will discuss how the projects delivered last year targeted community engagement, bringing people together across religious, economic and geographical boundaries.  Claire will share insights gained throughout the year as to how engagement through arts and culture can, and does, overcome real barriers, transforming perceptions and experiences of people and informing the legacy of the year.  She will include discussion on Hofesh Shechter, Portrait of a City, the Return of Colmcille (which engaged with 1,000 community participants) and the Music Promise.
