SPECTRA - Culture is not a Luxury

SPECTRA - Culture is not a Luxury

The #CultureIsNotALuxury Conference seeks to create new partnerships across heritage, arts, public space and education.

Our aim is to bring together arts, activism and those that hold the levers of power to critically question how the language of culture is used outside of the sector whilst trying to address how those of us in culture can better influence people's values beyond the sector and escape echo chambers. We will interrogate what the role of the arts in a (Post?) Covid UK is who speaks for change and how we deliver it.

For 2022 we are excited to welcome Dame Evelyn Glennie - internationally renowned musician and Chancellor of Robert Gordon University, Danny Forster Architect, Designer and Emmy-award-winning director/producer, Stuart J Robinson ex-Head of Planning and Executive Director at CBRE - alongside many more artists and leaders in culture, creativity, health, education, place & community from across Scotland and Internationally to help us investigate and interrogate the role of culture in recovery and renewal.

We'd love you to join us to start new conversations and make creative ideas into reality.

Tickets are available now on a pay what you can basis.
