The Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister and the Department of Finance and Personnel have arranged seminars across Northern Ireland as part of the public consultation process on the Northern Ireland Executive’s draft Programme for Government 2008-11, draft Investment Strategy 2008-18 and draft Budget 2008-11.
The seminars are an important part of the public consultation process that will determine the eventual outcome of the Draft Budget, and consequently the allocation for the arts over the next three year period. Anyone who is passionate about the arts should try to attend one of these meetings and have their views put on the record.
Details of the seminars are as follows:
Thursday 29 November, Guildhall, Londonderry
Monday 3 December, The Clinton Centre, Enniskillen
Wednesday 5 December, Spires Conference Centre, Belfast
Tuesday 11 December, Southern Education and Library Board Headquarters, Armagh.
All events will begin at 7pm and run until approximately 9.00pm.
Each seminar will begin with a short presentation and there will be an opportunity for group discussion on the proposals on each of the documents.
Anyone wishing to attend any of these events should contact the Economic Policy Unit in OFMDFM as follows:
