Arts and culture in England: funding, participation and technology

Westminster Forum Projects

Organiser:Westminster Forum Projects
Event cost:£0.00-£276.00


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 consultation on their strategy for the next ten years - with an initial report expected shortly and a further formal consultation to follow in the Autumn.

It will also take place following the launch of the Cultural Development Fund - a commitment from the Creative Industries Sector Deal - and delegates will discuss the future for public cultural investment, as well as what further action might be taken to reduce reliance on public resources - including diversifying revenue streams and business models, attracting private investment, and exploiting IP and assets.

The seminar will also provide an opportunity to consider what more might be done to resource culture more effectively and maximise its value, drawing on responses to the Cultural Cities Enquiry.

Attendees will assess priorities for expanding the socio-economic contribution of culture, and how the challenges for widening participation across England 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 - particularly in terms of skills, investment and data - 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.
