A group of artists will be touring Breckland in a van kitted out with multi-media during January and February in a consultation slightly more creative than the usual council questionnaires.

Creative workshops will be held in various villages and towns as part of the Go Create project by Breckland Council.

A team has been commissioned at a cost of �4,000 to carry out a 'creative consultation' which will see Community Music East and Young Lives working with targeted groups from young people and families to older people and minority groups in the towns and villages of Breckland.

The council wants to find out what people want from their arts service and are offering taster sessions for art activities such as photography, music, dance, drama, storytelling and animation.

The findings of the 'consultation', including resident's attitudes, opinions and motivations about the arts, will presented in a DVD and will shape the council's arts development plan for the district.

The dates and venues are as follows:
