Owlets Lecture: Alan Davey (CEO of Arts Council England)
Friday, 5th November 2010 at 8:30pm - 10pm
Location:Corpus Christi College Auditorium, Merton Street, Oxford, England, United Kingdom
This event is in the past.
On Friday evening, at 8:30pm, Alan Davey - the current head of Arts Council England will be delivering the fourth lecture in Owlets' 'Words from the Wise' series.
As the head of the principal arts funding body in the country, Alan Davey is at the centre of the massive storm surrounding budgetary cuts and their impact on the arts.
He will be talking on the future of arts funding in an austerity world but also more generally on how comparative value judgments can be made between seemingly very different forms of artistic expression.
Following on from Sian Phillips, Edward Kemp, and Sir Arnold Wesker, we really are spoilt for fabulous speakers this term. His lecture is set to be truly fascinating and it could not be delivered by a nicer man.
Hope you can all make it!
