Our Approach to Programming
Queen’s Park Arena is a unique space in a community with a strong sense of self, so our approach to our initial mapping exercise for Queen’s park, we pulled information from local organisations, surveys and lived experience of local people to identify societal challenges facing the diverse communities around the park.
We then grouped these issues into five key themes, and from here we began to develop the programmes.
- Social & Educational
- Arts & Heritage
- Health & Wellbeing
- Local Economy Benefit
These 5 categories, alongside our more recent consultations, are still used today when developing the programme. We pride ourselves on the impact we can make on our community by providing inclusive, diverse, and professional events and will always strive to improve each year.
