In Conversation with Darren Henley about The Arts Dividend

Darren Henley will introduce and discuss, in conversation with ICE’s Director Professor Roger Shannon, his recently published book, The Arts Dividend, which looks in depth at seven key benefits that art and culture bring to our lives: the nation’s creativity; advancing education; benefits in health and wellbeing; innovation and technology; place making in villages, towns and cities; economic prosperity; and enhancing England’s reputation for cultural excellence on the global stage.

Discussion will also touch on the Northern Cultural Powerhouse, a post BREXIT arts landscape and ‘Edgenomics.’
