About this Event
During the past year, arts organisations, museums and libraries have played a key role in supporting communities, bringing people together, creating thought provoking work and inspiring reflection. This has often been in partnership with Higher Education.
That civic role is reflected at a national level, through Government investment in the sector and in Local Authority and Local Enterprise Partnership plans for reset and recovery. It is also embedded within the Arts Council’s ambitious strategy for the next ten years, Lets Create.
This webinar is an opportunity to discuss the increasing focus on place, and how Higher Education Institutions and the arts and culture sector can build on their long history of strategic partnerships, research and talent development within a civic framework to realise their shared ambition to drive positive change in people and communities.
This webinar is being delivered in collaboration between the Civic University Network and Arts Council England. It will be a 90 minute panel event with initial speaker provocations, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A.
Hosted by: Jane Tarr, Director, Skills and Workforces, Arts Council England
Chaired by: Sukhy Johal MBE, Director of the Centre for Culture & Creativity, University of Lincoln
Confirmed speakers and discussion topics include:
Questions from participants will be welcomed during the Q&A section of the webinar in reaction to the discussion, however if you have any specific questions in advance that you would like to be put to the speaker panel please email with the subject ‘The Art of the Civic – Question‘ to firstname.lastname@example.org
