History of the Express network:
The Brighton & Hove Express Network is an autonomous open network of arts and cultural organisations, education sectors and other groups and freelancers working with young people.
The network began in 2008 and evolved into its current form in 2010, out of an identified need for closer working and networking in order to deliver 2 key objectives from the Express strategy:
To promote and provide opportunities for arts and cultural organisations, youth service and schools/ academies to work together to ensure that the provision of arts and culture for young people in the city is cohesive, relevant and sustainable
To ensure children and young people from 0 – 19 from all backgrounds are able to engage with, enjoy and be inspired by the highest quality arts and cultural activity that the city can offer.
Members of the Network communicate with each other via an open blog where agendas and minutes of the meetings are published and where events and activities can be publicised. The blog address is http://bhartsexpress.wordpress.com/
The Network meets approximately quarterly with a different member hosting each meeting and setting the broad agenda. Other members are invited to contribute thematic agenda items. The host takes responsibility for circulating the agenda, producing minutes and organising logistics for the meeting.
The meetings provide an opportunity for those interested and involved in the delivery of cultural engagement for young people to see different host organisations ‘at home’. The meetings take on the flavour of the host organisation and so can range from the very formal (chaired meetings and presentations) creative and interactive sessions.
The Network is self-sustaining and the meetings have taken place regularly since October 2010.
In March 2013 it was decided that the Express network would host a number of new exciting cultural projects and initiatives in the city on its online platform, thus ensuring that the arts and cultural provision for C & YP continues to be joined up and accessible to all. This new online platform will host :
