As part of a collaborative exchange with the University of Exeter by the internationally acclaimed arts organisation The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center (the Launchpad for American theatre incl. In the Heights and The Nether), the University is hosting an afternoon public conversation between international arts organisations, academics and regional culture-makers to address the benefits and constraints of private and public funding for arts and culture.
Sharing stories and strategies from the United States and the UK, from large arts organisations to participatory culture, the discussion will present a variety of models for funding of culture while provoking thoughts on the value arts and culture bring to our communities, businesses and city.
The discussion will be chaired by Lara Goodband, Director of Exeter Cultural Partnership.
Panel speakers include:
Dr Beverley Hawkins (Business UoE)
Dr Stephen Hetherington, MBE (HQ Theatres Trust)
Professor Jane Milling (Drama UoE)
Clare Titley (Head of Philanthropy Arts Council England)
Preston Whiteway (Executive Director of the O’Neill)
Organised and hosted by University of Exeter Drama Department in collaboration with the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center (USA). Supported by the Innovation, Impact and Business Directorate, University of Exeter during Art Week Exeter.
