SEFAN is now a member of the South East "Regional
Infrastructure Organisations" Group
This provides us (you) with an extra conduit to
influence development strategy in the region and
to receive information on proposed developments during
The RIO Group are in the process of creating a
development plan which deals
primarily with infrastructure issues, filling in gaps
in provision and avoiding duplication.
There are only two arts based organisations in the RIO
group so far, and they are SEFAN
and Making Music (SE). It will be quite a while before
this initiative has any impact
on your activities, but it is important that we are
involved in shaping future region wide
submissions to central government and for our members
to be able to cite RIO objectives in
support of their own grant applications.
We have copies of the draft plan available.
