Room at the Top Open Lecture Series 2016

Room at the Top open lecture series commences on Monday 11 January 2016 at with ‘The Artistic Case’ with Amit Sharma, Associate Director of Graeae Theatre Company.

When: Monday 11 January 2016, at 6pm

Where: Malet St, MAL G16

There will be 3 lectures per term over the Spring and Summer and will feature speakers from varying Arts areas such as the Director of Sky Arts, the Director of the Jerwood Charitable Foundation and more.

Once a month on a Monday evening speakers from a broad spectrum of the cultural sector will come to the School of Arts to share their thoughts and experiences and debate current issues in cultural policy making. The aim is to capture policy ideas, development and implementation wrapped in personal narratives from a variety of cultural perspectives. Together, speakers represent snapshots of a cultural landscape that is continuously asked for validation, reassurance and critical discourse. In six lectures and conversations speakers address topics as diverse as what drives artistic vitality in theatre, how one negotiates commercial scrutiny in TV and why tangible impact means success in the world of philanthropic giving. Furthermore, flexibility is questioned when the glass ceiling of the arts labour market meets ambitions for promotion and when local government arts funding is discussed as an oxymoron. Last but not least, festivals are on the agenda, where we will be exploring their fashionable status and querying their unifying community spirit.

We invite you to join the debate. Come and participate, discuss and care for the Arts.

Entry is free, but you will need to register here:
