Every week there is a What Next? Norfolk meeting at Norwich Playhouse, usually 1-2pm. It is an opportunity for the arts and cultural sector of Norwich to meet and discuss issues and opportunities in a practical and strategic way.
Each week, a list of useful links are distributed and replicated here. To receive them directly, as well as notifications of meetings email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the mailing list.
