Now so is time to ensure your place at this important Conference. This is the first ever strategic conference for folk in the SE, and likely to be the only one for the foreseeable future! With plan to end ACE support to Folk Arts England in 2 years time and the restructuring of ACE's administration to only four, larger, regional areas, this meeting comes at a crucial time so do come and be a part of it. Apart from linking up with people and starting collaborations and programmes, we hope to set the tone and direction of SEFAN's work for the foreseeable future. We are trying to limit the places to 60 so that we can strive towards real identifiable outcomes rather than just another talking shop! So if you are intending to come get your confirmation and payment in quick now. Read the full details and programme for the Regional Strategic Conference.
