Can we exercise freedom of expression? Are we nurturing tomorrow’s talent? and What does success look like? These are just some of the questions to be raised at this year’s State of the Arts conference, No Boundaries 2015.
450 delegates will attend this year’s sold out No Boundaries conference next Tuesday and Wednesday in Bristol and Manchester. The event aims to offer a global perspective and provoke debate on the role of arts and culture in modern society. Five broad themes will be debated: Can we exercise freedom of expression? Are we nurturing tomorrow’s talent? How does the money flow? Can we do things differently? What does success look like?
The conference will be live-linked between the two venues, HOME Manchester and right here at Watershed, and streamed live online from 11.45am on Tue 29 Sept for those not able to attend (visit www.nb2015.org to tune in).
The latest speakers to the programme include: Julia Farringdon, Associate Art Producer, Index on Censorship, Ian Hargreaves CBE, Professor of Digital Economy, Cardiff University; Nadia Latif, Theatre Director; Stuart Nolan, Performer & Research magician; Bertie Cole, Technical Director, Arcadia; Mary Lou Aleskie, Executive Director of the International Festival of Arts and Ideas in New Haven, Connecticut.
