Event description

Description

What is this all about then?

After the fallout following Wise Children gaining a place in the new ACE portfolio of funded arts organisations, many people highlighted their opinions on how the arts are funded. For some it works, for others it doesn't.

Join us as we discuss how the arts should be funded - if at all! - with an inevitable focus on Liverpool.

The evening will start with short talks from a panel of speakers before being opened up to a chaired debate involving the audience. Think Question Time, except we'll all have a drink in our hands and no one is allowed to talk about Brexit!

This event will happen to the backdrop of Make Liverpool hosting part of the Captain Beefhart celebrations, the following weekend. Nearly 50 artists will be installing the exhabition in our event space duing that time.

Who are the panel of speakers?

The rest of the panel will be revealed over the coming weeks.

Three part series!

Folken started in summer 2016, offering a grassroots, street-level view of the some of the subjects that consume us when we talk about the city we live in. We’ve talked about access to money, meanwhile spaces and creative places; writing, starting a magazine and building a football club.

Make Liverpool is the temporary custodian of Folken for this three-part special edition. We've chosen three cracking topics to cover in this series, starting with 'Gender Equity’, moving on to 'How the arts are funded' and finishing with ‘Gentrification'. Join us!
