Folken: Let’s talk about how the arts are funded
What is this all about then?
After the fallout following Wise Children gaining a place in the new ACE portfolio of funded arts organisations, many people highlighted their opinions on how the arts are funded. For some it works, for others it doesn’t.
Join us as we discuss how the arts should be funded – if at all! – with an inevitable focus on Liverpool.
The evening will start with short talks from a panel of speakers before being opened up to a chaired debate involving the audience. Think Question Time, except we’ll all have a drink in our hands and no one is allowed to talk about Brexit!
This event will happen to the backdrop of Make Liverpool hosting part of the Captain Beefhart celebrations, the following weekend. Nearly 50 artists will be installing the exhabition in our event space duing that time.
Who are the panel of speakers?
- John Hyatt – Director of Art Labs at LJMU (AKA: The Punk Professor)
- Erika Rushton – Cultural Econmist, Artist, Social Investor with the Beautiful Ideas Co.
- Karen Gallagher MBE – Artistic Director, MDI
- Craig Pennington – Bido Lito
- Neil Simpson – Linkedin Launchpad
The rest of the panel will be revealed over the coming weeks.
