ONE TO WATCH – a free Online Event: Cultural Conversations – Philanthropy in the Arts

‘Philanthropy in the Arts’ was hosted online from 5.00pm-6.30pm BST on Wednesday 30th September by The Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alderman William Russell and the Genesis Foundation. This is the third in the series of Cultural Conversations.

This Conversation, the last of the 2020 season, is chaired by BBC arts presenter Kirsty Lang, who was joined by: 

Kwame Kwei-Armah OBE, Artistic Director of the Young Vic; 

Dame Julia Peyton-Jones CBE, Senior Global Director at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac; 

Rebecca Salter PRA, President of the Royal Academy of Arts; 

Sir Nicholas Serota CH, Chair of Arts Council England;

and John Studzinski CBE, Founder and Chairman of the Genesis Foundation.

In these times of extreme fluidity in shaping the future of the arts within a shifting cultural landscape, this proved a useful and stimulating debate.

POSTSCRIPT This event is highly-recommended – an engrossing and inspiring meeting of minds, and the event was “attended” by over 500 viewers. Very worthwhile to watch for anyone interested in the arts, you can watch the recording of the discussion here
