We are seeking others to help develop a CDF application for a symposium/exploratory event around the theme of cultural democracy.
Arts Council England recently published its ‘Cultural Democracy in Practice’ report, sparking debate in professional and academic circles:https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/publication/cultural-democracy-practice.
We are developing an event that brings together some of the key players in this debate. This includes industry professionals, artists, activists and academics. So far, agreed in principle, speakers include:
ACE CEO Darren Henley - https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/users/darren-henley
Dr Steven Hadley - https://www.theaudienceagency.org/our-team/steven-hadley

This project has 4 core aims
