Devoted and Disgruntled – Do You Think The Perfoming Arts Matter In This Election?

Free event, no booking required.
In this key pre election moment this is an invitation to come together at Toynbee Studios to discuss and engage with the important issues raised by this question.
From the last D&D meeting at the start of this month emerged the desire to widen this debate to include politicians, audiences and other stakeholders, to engage with these questions in a way that involves genuine and constructive debate.
The evening will run using Open Space technology which gives anyone the chance to propose a starting point for discussion, then take part in one of these conversations or flit between them all.
If any of these questions concern you, come along:
Do artists care about politics?
Do politicians care about the arts?
What do performing artists and politicians have in common? 
As a politician, would you like the opportunity to listen and be listened to? To meet the community who cares about these issues?
As an artist, what would make a difference and win your vote?
As an audience member, what would win your vote? What are your concerns?
What will it be like to be involved in the performing arts after this election?
How can the cultural Olympiad actually leave the culture enriched?
What matters to you most about the future of the performing arts in this country?
