THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will consider the future for arts and culture in England, with a focus on funding, participation and technology.
It is timed to consider key themes emerging from Arts Council England’s recently published report on their strategy for the next ten years - with a further formal consultation due to follow in the Autumn.
The seminar also takes place following the launch of the Cultural Development Fund - a commitment from the Creative Industries Sector Deal - and will provide delegates with the opportunity to discuss the future for public cultural investment and consider what further action might be taken to increase sector resilience - including diversifying revenue streams and business models, attracting private investment, and exploiting IP and assets.
Attendees will also assess priorities for expanding the socio-economic contribution of culture, drawing on responses to the Cultural Cities Enquiry, and consider how challenges for widening participation might be addressed - focusing on regional imbalances, collaboration with other sectors, the development of local partnerships, and issues around relevance and engagement.
Further sessions will explore how the sector is adapting to, and utilising, new technologies, and consider next steps for driving innovation - looking at the development of next generation audiences and practitioners, challenges for fostering a culture of experimentation and collaboration, and opportunities for monetisation.
