Opening Plenary speaker announced!

We are delighted to announce that Madani Younis, Creative Director at The Southbank Centre, has agreed to give our opening plenary. Madani will set the tone for the day with a wide-ranging keynote speech, exploring questions of civic responsibility in the arts: how culture and heritage can help us to claim who we are at a time of great social and political uncertainty; and what duty we have in helping reframe and expand our national cultural history and identity so that it is properly represents the diversity of the UK.
