~Recently we’ve experienced the crisis in the NHS and how a lack of funding is struggling to keep it a float. In other sectors of the workplace there is also considerable factors of neglect and missed opportunity. The arts in particular is another area in which it has, at times been ailing, that is, until now.

This Friday 14th July 2017 from 10am -4pm at the Media Innovation Studio at the Media Factory at UCLAN, Preston,  is an event which speaks to put the public arts in the spotlight. The first of a number of discussions across the UK will seek to examine what a future national government policy for the public arts could potentially look like.

It will be an opportunity to hear from a range of perspectives about the importance of the public arts in the modern world through a range of different policies and initiatives.

•Carolyn Primett, Head of Arts - Blackpool Council

•Matthew Burl, Architect, Associate - Hawkins\Brown
