No Boundaries

25th and 26th February 2014

The cultural map is being re-drawn… by new behaviours, new technologies, new models of funding and new local, national and global thinking. No Boundaries is an open symposium on the role of culture in 21st century society bringing together leaders and activists in a debate that will build over the coming months culminating in a two day event in February 2014, connecting discussions across two venues and the web.
The debate will build over the coming months culminating in a two-day event held simultaneously in York and Bristol on 25 and 26 February 2014.

Delegates can choose to attend No Boundaries at either of two locations, York or Bristol, with each venue providing unique experiences and a live-link to seamlessly broadcast talks between both spaces. The aim is that working over two locations will help reduce travel times and cost which, combined with a tiered ticket pricing structure, will enable a wide range of Arts and culture professionals to attend.

No Boundaries will present questions and challenging new ideas, as well as offering breakout discussions and playful, unexpected moments. It will be accessible for established cultural leaders and for those who are discovering their leadership role. It aims to find positive approaches to influence change and support the sector’s growth in a world where there is no normal.

Contributors include: Abigail Posner (Google), Dr Benjamin Barber (Political Theorist), Brian Gambles (Library of Birmingham), Lynsey O’Sullivan (The Lowry), Margaret Heffernan (Entrepreneur / Author),
Russell Willis Taylor (National Arts Strategies, USA) and many more for a full list click here.

No Boundaries is a State of the Arts event supported by Arts Council England and British Council.
