The final discussion in this season hosted by The Lord Mayor of the City of London and the Genesis Foundation is the sixth Cultural Conversation, focusing on the economic value of culture and the arts and it power to aid our ailing economy. The New Future: Art and Culture in the Making of a Vibrant Economy took place online on Monday 20 September, with a live and virtual audience contributing to the Q&A section at the end of the discussion. And what a praiseworthy and interesting talk it was, with great audience interaction in the Q&A too.
The Cultural Conversations series has been a sequence of focused debates around Arts and Culture in the City of London, and are always worth watching. This sixth conversation was chaired by Will Gompertz, in conversation with Alderman William Russell, John Studzinski CBE, our Founder and Chairman, Kully Thiarai, Creative Director, Leeds 2023, Claire McColgan MBE, Director of Culture, Liverpool City Council and Nina Skero, Chief Executive, Centre for Economic and Business Research.
A further series of Cultural Conversations is scheduled for next year.
