Bright Blue’s think forums are run by our members and are spaces for those on the centre-right to come together to chat about politics and discuss policy.

For this forum, we welcome guest speakers Nigel Huddleston MP (former member of the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee) and – (-).

Both speakers will be making the case for maximising access and participation in the arts in Britain and their vision of how we get there – considering the state of the arts in Britain as a whole and considering best practice for improvements.

The ability to access the arts improves the quality of life, educational attainment and cohesion of communities. The arts, however, are at times seen as elitist and only open to a small section of society. Ensuring that the arts are open and available to everyone is rightly an aspiration of the Government. In the first event held by the Bright Blue Creative Think Forum, we will discuss how successful the Government has been at making this aspiration become a reality, and what more can be done to achieve it.

Key questions:

  • What are the current policies and how effective are they?
  • What goes into making a thriving arts sector?
  • What is the role of the private sector in maximising accessibility?

Date: Date, 2018, 19.00 – 20.30
