Can culture transform Birmingham and the Black Country?
Join the April meetup of the RSA Black Country and Birmingham Network to debate the role of arts and culture in the region.
With the public purse strings tighter than ever, we'll be discussing what part the arts and culture should play in the development of the region. Are they an optional extra or a necessary pre-requisite to growth? Is there such a thing as a West Midlands culture?
On the panel:
- Geoff Henderson (Director, Urban Hax and Author, Artisans from the Future: How a Changing World and Developing Technologies are Shaping the Pictures of Artisans in the 21st Century)
- Helga Henry (Director of Organisational Development, Birmingham Hippodrome)
- Dr Geoff Willcocks (Coventry City of Culture 2021)
- Jonathan Todd (Panel Chair and Co-founder, 1000 Trades)
All are welcome and it is free to attend - just book your place at the top of the page. If you have any questions, please contact the Network Lead John Stapleton FRSA: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Network meets to stimulate fun and intelligent debate and action about the big challenges facing our world today, not least here in Birmingham and the Black Country itself.
Please note this venue is on the first floor and only accessible via stairs. From May, the venue used for RSA Black Country and Birmingham Network events will be fully accessible.
