On Tuesday 3 December the Creative Foundation's very own Chief Executive Alastair Upton will be talking as part of a seminar about the future of arts funding.
This seminar will bring out latest thinking on new approaches to funding the arts - including the prospects for increasing corporate and private philanthropic support, and the emerging options to increase culturally-focused tourism.
Delegates will discuss how private investment can be maximised and sustained; options for increasing the earned income of cultural institutions whilst ensuring equality of access; how to promote cultural engagement across Britain; and the emerging options for Britain to capitalise on its culture, arts and heritage in order to compete internationally for cultural tourists. This conference will bring together key policymakers in the UK with national development agencies; local councils and charities; corporate sponsors, investors and private philanthropists; consumer and citizen groups; representatives from cultural institutions, tourism organisations and Arts associations; academics and commentators; legal specialists and other interested parties.
