A public debate about the future of culture in Sheffield.
Anyone who lives in Sheffield or visits the city knows it has a great cultural scene – music, museums, festivals, theatre, art, film, dance and more. But widespread austerity measures mean less and less money is being invested in culture.
This event provides an opportunity contribute to an open debate about the role of culture in the future development of Sheffield.
The debate will call for imaginative action to harness the creative energy of our city. But it will also ask difficult questions. With so many other pressing demands on public funds, which cultural activities should we support and why?
The debate is for everyone. It promises to be an entertaining and interactive discussion.
