Creative Cities: Why location matters | 24th April 2017 | 7PM

Location: Level 5 Function Room, Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XX

London is one of the world’s leading cultural and creative cities, but how has it achieved this status and what impact does it have on being a young arts professional in the capital?

This panel discussion will explore what it is that makes creative cities flourish, and will look at the impact of the current concentration of cultural activities and organisations in the capital. Are opportunities for young arts professionals increased or stifled by the London-centric arts scene? And how can you stay ahead of the curve? Can London's 'place-making model’ be replicated across the country? 

We look forward to welcoming speakers Laura Dyer (Deputy Chief Executive of Places & Engagement, Arts Council England), Fran Hegyi (Executive Director of Hull City of Culture), Helen Marriage (Director of Artichoke) and panel chair Penny Mills (The Audience Agency).

Join us as we seek to better understand the environments in which we work, which in turn help inform our own practice as we advance in our careers. If you want to try and make sense of our crazy capital and the cities around it, this event will help you find your way.

This talk will be followed by a Q&A and networking drinks.
