Project Status: In Progress.
The project will deliver an annual conference event that creates a colourful, stimulating summary of activity for that year, drawing on the efforts of partners, community groups and individuals. It will be open to all.
Each year will see a different conference theme, with the final event aiming to bring all groups that have been involved in the lifetime of the scheme together for a grand, celebratory finale. The conference events will promote the work of groups and individuals so that they feel involved and appreciated. The landscape wide nature of the conference will also help generate pride in the wider area and help reinforce the sense of partnership working created by the scheme.
Whilst the aim is to ensure the conferences are reflective of community and volunteer effort, it is also an opportunity to draw high-profile speakers that will attract new audiences to the Land of the Fanns concept.
