Can the Arts Save the Economy?

Posted by lostincci on December 10, 2009

Centre Director Dr Richard Howells‘ contribution to the Battle of Ideas debate on “Can the Arts Save The Economy” is now available via online audio at:
http://www.battleofideas.org.uk/index.php/2009/session_detail/2548/

The event was held at the Royal College of Art in London: joining the discussion with Richard were James Boyle, former controller of BBC Radio 4, Angus Kennedy, IT consultant, Karl-Erik Norman the opera singer and Secretary General of the European Cultural Parliament, and Douglas Slater, the writer, critic, political strategist and policy advisor, and co-founder of Stonewall.

You can hear Richard argue that the arts cannot save the economy -and neither should they be expected to either.
