BOOK NOW: ixia's Public Art, Cultural Well-Being and the NPPF events

Date uploaded: August 20, 2012

BOOK NOW - for ixia's Public Art, Cultural Well-Being and the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) events

ixia has organised three free briefing events on how the provision of public art will be influenced by the prominent inclusion of cultural well-being within the NPPF. The events will be led by the planning barrister, Ian Dove QC of No5 Chambers, and the cultural commentator, John Holden.

The topics covered will include:

  • the purpose and status of the NPPF and how it relates to the planning system at a local level, including the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL);
  • the relationship between cultural well-being and public art;
  • the justification and inclusion of cultural well-being and public art within local planning documents.

The briefing events are for arts officers, public art officers, planners, artists, curators, developers and arts funders. The events are free of charge.

The events will be held at DLA Piper's offices across the country. Click on the links below for more information and to book your place on Eventbrite:
