Arts Council England - lecture
03 Nov 2008
Royal Society of Arts - London
Alan Davey, Chief Executive of Arts Council England, outlined his vision for the next ten years. His wide ranging speech covered moving away from three funding arrangements and the introduction of a consultation on self-assessment and peer review. He declared that, “the Arts Council, as a major funder of the arts in this country, needs to get beyond a series of false dichotomies – between excellence and engagement, between centralism and regional distinctiveness, between local and global, in a way that it has not managed to do in the past.”
