On Thursday 14th January I will be attending the State of the Arts Conference, Park Plaza Riverbank, London. Organised by the RSA and Arts Council England, the event brings together a wide range of creative voices to debate the value and purpose of the arts at a time of significant change.
The arts and cultural experiences are more diverse, disruptive and fast moving than ever before. The conference will explore with artists, entrepreneurs, cultural leaders and policy makers what kind of arts landscape we need and how we might get there.
