Brokers or gatekeepers

IMG_1967In advance of next week’s event, I’ve written a short article for Slugger O’Toole about why I think this conversation is important. There are still some tickets left for the free talk on Thursday 6 April at 6.30pm. Hope to see you there.

Speaking a different language

Next up in my calendar in April 2017, I’ll be part of the Broken Crow residency at the Everyman Palace in Cork on 13 April. I’m delivering a workshop for artists and creative practitioners on how business concepts can help rather than hinder creative thinking.

There are a limited number of spaces so early booking is recommended. Follow this link

Opening up the conversation

I’m delighted to be coordinating and chairing this public talk ‘Brokers and Gatekeepers: Arts & Cultural Leaders in promoting intercultural exchange’ in the Harty Room at Queen’s University Belfast  on 6 April 2017. Tickets (free) are available now by following the link.

It should be an interesting and exciting event drawing on the insights of some top figures in arts management research and opening up discussion about the important roles the heads of arts and cultural institutions play.

It’s a public element of a longer and much more wide-ranging research network set up by Victoria Durrer and Raphaela Henze. You can read more about what they are doing here.

POST UPDATE: The audio recording & PPTs of this event and others in the seminar are now online.
