Taking part in the Big Arts Debate at Vault Festival


As part of VAULT, a visual and performing arts festival taking place in railway arches underneath Waterloo station, I took part as a panelist in the Big Arts Debate.  This gave me, along with representatives from the Conservatives, Green and UKIP parties to outline our priorities and plans for the arts and culture sector ahead of May’s General Election.  A lively debate took place, with a wide range of subjects discussed including arts funding, the role and importance of arts and culture in society, the BBC and supporting creative industries all featured.  It was great to see so many people interested in the future of arts and culture policy at this exciting time.
