THIRD SPACE INVITED TO ATTEND

National Campaign For the Arts COLLOQUY #4

Radisson Hotel, Galway

Education and the Arts: Policy, Research and Responsibilities

This colloquy addressed the fundamental question of education, arts policy and research in the development of arts participants, audiences and practitioners in the future. The event featured three speakers:

  • Ms. Hannele Lehto (Finland)
  • Dr. Julian Sefton-Green (UK)
  • A local respondent

The aim of the NCFA Colloquia series is to amplify and illuminate key research issues for the arts and arts policy in Ireland. Specifically, to develop a research agenda for the arts/arts policy  and to increase understanding and debate about the arts in Ireland and to do this by bringing together key stakeholders in the delivery, reception and policy context of the arts – the public (civil society/public sphere etc.), arts practitioners and the government (including policy makers etc.).

This was the final of four core events in the NCFA Colloquia series curated by Tara Byrne, independent arts manager and cultural policy adviser.
