Talk: Public Art Private Money

Where should the arts look for funding in an era of austerity? Corporate backing? Private wealth? US-style philanthropy? Or none of these. As the recent anti-BP protests at Tate have shown, the relationship between art and business is still controversial. Burt what choice do cultural institutions have with government spending in retreat?

Speakers including John Woodward (the recently resigned Chief Executive Officer of the UKFC), Alex Beard (Deputy Director of Tate), Colin Tweedy (Chief Executive of Arts & Business), Marcus Romer (Artistic Director of Pilot Theatre, York Theatre Royal) and former Chairman of Arts Council England, Christopher Frayling. The discussion will be chaired by BBC Radio 4 Front Row presenter John Wilson.

Thursday 23 September, 7.30pm at ICA
