There is no doubt we have been inspired here both as individuals and as a group. This was a risk coming here, will it full fill expectations? What could we learn? Is it relevant to Brierfield? Wednesday was a turning point, presenting as In-Situ to the PRH team and community raised lots of questions for the group, about they they fit in individually and as through their respective orgainisations. We had a very challenging and productive conversation. The speed in which we have moved to get this ready, has been great, but this week and our conversations with the group has enabled us to explore very deeply our future partnerships and how we can collectively make an impact. There have been some key moments for a lot of people and the group have all had experiences in some form to inspire and challenge.
We have been able to be honest and open with all our thoughts and the process has changed the nature of the conversations for me (Paul) with the group member having experienced first hand the role arts have played in the renewal here at PRH
Collectiveley we have committed to a joint visioning process and developing a clarity on long term goals but a newly formed understanding that we can make mistakes and try things, if we are strong together
We have also learnt lots about organising and running a trip like this! Paul Hartley (In-situ)
