The ART Annual Conference has become a regular feature in the ringing calendar. It is an inspiring and enjoyable weekend, with speakers sharing their own ringing and teaching ideas, as well as those from other activities and professions.
The conference is open to all ringers. We hope you will be able to join us for the 2022 Conference over the weekend of 7 and 8 May, at Erdington Academy, Birmingham – together we can make a difference.
If you are an ART member, patron, sponsor or friend, we will have sent you an email with a personal voucher code giving you a discount on your conference booking. You must enter this voucher code on the registration page to obtain your discount.
Registration opens on Thursday 10 March and closes on Friday 29 April. If you’ve not used our events website before, you’ll need to sign up on the site before registering for the Conference. The full conference programme can be downloaded here. It will help you plan which workshops and sessions you would like to attend.
ART’s conference agenda this year includes a great line up of speakers. Our key-note speaker is not a ringer. Jen Saunders is a workforce transformation specialist and her talk – Building Resilience and Breaking Habits – speaks about building resilience both for organisations and for individuals as they adapt to change. Jen is joined by our other key-note speakers:
A range of seminars will showcase innovative ideas and good practice from amongst the bell ringing community. These include:
We have also organised a lunchtime Devon Call Change Masterclass hosted by Ian Avery, Jon Bint and Graham Sharland from the Devon Association. Book early for this as places are limited.
Continuing our successful partnerships with the CCCBR, the second day of the conference is organised by the Stewardship and Management Workgroup. There will be plenty of opportunities to share ideas and information and talk to specialists.
I hope that we’ve whetted your appetite for what the 2022 Conference has to offer, and I look forwards to seeing you in May.
