Music, the Arts and Social Cohesion: Dialogue & Debate

Resource type: Webinar

A Dialogue & Debate webinar exploring the important role of music and the arts in building social cohesion and providing a means through which people can share ideas and experiences, in a creative and accessible way.

We focus, in particular, on why the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have been so damaging to the arts and entertainment sector, and how individuals, charities and the Government might help it to rebuild safely and sustainably.

This webinar was streamed live on Wednesday 2 September, and was presented by Cumberland Lodge Chief Executive Dr Edmund Newell. He was joined by guest panellists:

  • Jane Corry – Chief Executive and Artistic Director, Norden Farm Centre for the Arts
  • Jessica Jhundoo-Evans – Chair of Trustees, South Hill Park Arts Centre
  • James Potter – Director, Cathedral Singers of Christ Church
  • Luke Rittner CBE – Chief Executive, Royal Academy of Dance
