Art in a cold climate


Turning Point West Midlands is holding a conference tomorrow, between 10am and 3.30pm at Warwick Arts Centre.

The event, Art in a cold climate, is delivered in partnership with Birminham City University and the University of Warwick and addresses the future role of arts education:

It is widely predicted that the period following the economic crisis of 2008 will be a 'lost decade' with no economic growth and a consequent absence of opportunities for a generation to initiate their careers. At a time when Universities are undergoing huge changes, this day conference, facilitated by Turning Point West Midlands, explores what is needed to place the region's art schools at the centre of a dynamic, sustainable cultural ecology.

Art in a cold climate

is for artists and academics who teach in art schools, their students and alumni and other cultural brokers in the region. 

Tickets cost £5 for individuals & concessions / £10 when paid by an institution and are available from Warwick Arts Centre Box Office:
