The V&A and The University of Reading are organising an international conference related to the major AHRC project, ‘Giving Voice to the Nation’: the Arts Council of Great Britain and the development of theatre and performance in Britain 1945-1995. This five-year project investigates the relationship between subsidy, policy and practice in the archives of the Arts Council of Great Britain.
The conference and symposia will be held 19-21 July 2012 and is titled Subsidy, Patronage & Sponsorship : Theatre and Performance Culture in Uncertain Times. It will be held at the V&A, and Robert Hewison, author of The Cultural Leadership Handbook, will be speaking at the event.
The conference will be located in the Hochhauser Auditorium in the Sackler Centre for Arts Education at the V&A. It brings together graduate researchers, academic staff, curators, practitioners, and experts on policy and funding to debate the past, present and future of arts funding.
Robert Hewison will be taking part in a panel discussion at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford upon Avon on Saturday 16th July at 10am. The topic is “Theatre, Art and the 1960’s”, and is part of the RSC’s 50th birthday season. Hewison’s new book, co-authored with John Holden, is The Cultural Leadership Handbook: How to run a Creative Organization. It is published this month by Gower.
Robert Hewison is Professor of Cultural Policy and Leadership Studies at City University London and an Associate of the think tank Demos. As a cultural consultant he has worked with the South Bank Centre, the Greater London Authority, Arts Council England and the North West Cultural Consortium.
