Event Description

Following recent free speech hearings around the world – workshops exploring the conditions necessary for free expression to flourish – Index on Censorship is coming to Cardiff to ask the question: is Wales enjoying its right to artistic freedom of expression?

Some say yes — Wales has a proud cultural heritage, a vibrant bi-lingual arts scene and a closely-knit community. Others cite concerns — too few voices, too little access, complex linguistic battles, poor infrastructure, dwindling resource.

Join voices from across Wales inc.artists, arts managers and policy makers from all fields and working at all levels for an afternoon of participatory debate and open, honest discussion.

Confirmed participants include:

  • Elen ap Robert (Artistic Director, Pontio Centre of Arts and Innovation)
  • Dai Smith (Chair of Arts Council Wales)
  • Lleucu Siencyn (CEO Literature Wales)
  • David Anderson (Director General of Museums Wales)
  • John McGrath (Artistic Director, National Theatre Wales)
