The importance of the arts, in all their forms, has become very clear during the pandemic. Whether it is through watching movies, taking up painting or a musical instrument or just missing live performance, the benefits of the arts to our well-being have been highlighted. Education plays a major role in fostering the arts but can also exclude many groups from participating and engaging. This event will explore these issues and consider how we can improve access, participation and progression into the creative and performing arts.
Our speakers include:
- Professor Richard Noble, Goldsmiths University of London
- Dr Michelle Phillips, Royal Northern College of Music
- Dermot Daly, Leeds Conservatoire
