Media professional? Film maker? Arts fan? Social media obsessive? All of the above? Or not? Either way, there’s plenty to float your boat this week.

  • Now: advise the Arts Council

Want to make friends and influence people? The Arts Council is looking for advisors for their nine regional Councils. These are voluntary roles where you’ll be asked to champion the arts amongst your networks and feed back to the Council.

  •  Now: stay up to date with changes to the Screenlit competition

Darn those technical difficulties. They get everywhere. Apparently they have now affected ScreenLit’s competition so the rules have been changed.  Make sure you’re up to date for your chance to win a Macbook and be immortalised with a personalised seat plaque at the Broadway.

  • Tuesday 23 March: look into the future of food and drink

No, this isn’t whether we’ll soon be eating dried space food out of those little metallic packets. The iFestival, the “biggest and most diverse programme of innovation themed events in the UK” continues with events across the East Midlands, including a showcase of university research into the food and drink industry.

  • Wednesday 24 March: get inharmonic at the Bonington

Take part in an interactive sound installation by Robert Squirrel.

  • Thursday 25 March: get to know Nottingham Skillset Media Academy

Are you a media professional? Here’s an opportunity to find out more about the Nottingham Skillset Media Academy. There’ll be drinks, nibbles and ’employer engagement’, apparently.

Thursday is also World Theatre Day. let us know if you’re planning any dramatic happenings to mark the occasion and we’ll try to feature them on CreativeNottingham.

  • Friday 26 March (and Saturday 27): try a free art workshop with Pass the Source

Enjoy digital art works including film, music, photography, animation and installation all created free with Open Source software. And free workshops.

This is the local event for anyone wanting to share and expand their knowledge on digital media. There’ll be plenty of social media and digital experts and aficionados under one roof. It’s also completely free. If you haven’t already booked your place, now is the time. See you there.
