As a result of a major cut in funding from the Scottish Government the Centre is changing the way it operates. Instead of becoming a part-time version of ourselves we've decided to go for a more radical reorganisation. Essentially this means that, at the end of December, we give up our office in Glasgow and go virtual.
Those of you who mainly access the Centre via the web (rather than via events) will actually benefit from this reorganisation as we're going to do even more on-line. We'll have more time to add new material and to help keep the website up to date. We're also planning a new front page and new features such as 'webinars' and videos.
From the beginning of 2011 we are also broadening the focus of our work and bringing to the website new material and perspectives.
We're also planning a series of networking/discussion events around Scotland which we are calling 'Centre exchanges'. Dates and information about these will be posted in the new year.
We shall also be exploring ways of exploiting new technology and new media.
As a result of all these changes -
The Centre has not resisted the funding cut as we think it fair that we have to review how we operate and come up with potentially more cost effective ways of contributing.
