his is one of a series of events combining an update of the background and likely options for Brexit, alongside a summary of the breadth of EU funding opportunities from 2017-2019. This event will be hosted by B-arts and Stoke City Council, and will be held in Training room 4 of Smithfield 1, Canon Street, Stoke-on-Trent ST13DH (http://www.smithfieldstoke.com/location.php) on 23 February, starting at 2pm and running until 4.30pm.

This will include a) an update of Brexit news and the implications for the arts & culture sector, and b) a platform to discuss the issues of most concern to the sector and ways of lobbying for the voice of the sector to be heard during the next 2 years of Brexit negotiations. The EU Funding part will provide an overview of the likely EU opportunities from 2017-19, including Creative Europe, Erasmus+, Europe for Citizens, Horizon 2020, Interreg and the Structural & Investment Funds.
