The Value of Culture Debate

Alastair Spalding, CEO and Artistic Director of Sadler’s Wells chairs a What Next? conversation on the impact and value of culture, arts and literature in our society. He will be joined by guests including Tony Ageh, Controller, BBC Archives Development, to discuss how we can get the public to appreciate the many different ways art and culture can affect and enhance our lives.



How can we work together better across the cultural sector to encourage the people of this country, as individuals and as communities, to see connections between the many different ways art and culture affect and enhance our lives; to urge everyone to register their endorsement of – and pleasure in – their art and culture, especially where these are under threat?


What next? Is a national movement bringing together arts & cultural organisations across the UK to articulate & strengthen the role of culture in our society. We want to engage the public in new & different conversations about the value & impact of arts, literature & culture on all our lives. What kind of society do we want and how do we make that a reality?
