The Royal Society of Arts (RSA) is all about uniting people and ideas to resolve the challenges of our time. As part of its Northern Forum, the RSA is collaborating with the Bluecoat for a half-day conference at the arts centre.
Leading local figures from the worlds of business, academia, politics and charity are being brought together to deliver lightning talks on different aspects of ‘Levelling Up’. A full list of speakers will be announced shortly, but those already approached promise a breadth of ideas that they think can inform this agenda – with perspectives on issues such as employment, skills, regional inequalities, culture-led regeneration and devolution.
With each talk restricted to ten-fifteen minutes, the series is guaranteed to make for a lively, informative and stimulating occasion. Come along and be inspired, meet like-minded people, and spark some ideas that will help shape the future!
