Discussion and Book Launch

The arts sector in Northern Ireland is in crisis. After years of funding cuts and issues around governance and strategy, the sector is teetering on the brink of collapse.

Recently the entire edifice of public subsidy for the arts has been brought into question. The forum will feature speakers from the world of arts management and cultural policy, and promises lively and informed debate.

The event concludes with a book launch and wine reception for the recently published, Culture, Democracy and the Right to Make Art by Alison Jeffers and Gerri Moriarty

Guest Speakers: Prof Ele Belfiore, Dr Steven Hadley (Chair), Dr Alison Jeffers, Gerri Moriarty, Dr Stephen Pritchard, Conor Shields
