Join us for the first of a number of conversations that will happen across the country, examining what a future national government policy for the public arts could look like.
We will hear a range of perspectives about how the public arts have played a critical role in adding to the development of a place through a range of different policies and initiatives. Together we will examine what a fit for purpose and future national policy for the promotion and funding of the public arts could look like.
Guest speakers include:
- Carolyn Primett, Head of Arts – Blackpool Council
- Matthew Burl, Architect, Associate – Hawkins\Brown
- Professor Charles Quick, Co-founder In Certain Places and Chair of Arts and Place working group
This event is led by the Arts and Place working group that emerged from the Farrell Review of Architecture and the Built Environment 2014 and has now been adopted as part of the Place Alliance movement. The Arts and Place working group is a collective of individuals and organisations from across the UK working together to influence policy change for the integration and promotion of the public arts in place for the benefit of everyone. Beam coordinates the working group through its Arts Council funded programme Arts In Place.
