RSA Bristol: In ConveRSAtion with Vikki Heywood

Fellowship Event


Bordeaux Quay, Bristol

  • Fellowship

Come and join us for the next lunchtime series in collaboration with Transform. At this session we’ll hear from Vikki Heywood CBE, Chair of the RSA, on her work as Chair and her career across the years. She’ll be in conversation with Nicky Saunter FRSA.

Vikki Heywood was appointed for a second three year term as RSA Chairman at the AGM in October 2015, the first time ever that the Chairman has been invited to remain.

Previously, she was the Executive Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC), a position from which she stepped down in 2013. Since leaving the RSC she has taken on the chairmanship of The RSA, The Warwick Commission on the Future of Cultural Value which published January 2015, Mountview Drama Academy, and the five year First World War Centenary arts commissioning programme, “14-18 Now”.

Prior to her appointment at the RSC, Vikki was Joint Chief Executive of the Royal Court Theatre, the country's foremost theatre for the development of new writing. At both the RSC and the Royal Court she was responsible for their two multi-million-pound capital projects which transformed two iconic theatre buildings in London and Stratford Upon Avon.

Bring your own lunch to eat and be inspired. Tea and coffee can be bought downstairs in Bordeaux Quay.
