In a rapidly changing world and a time of crucial political and social change, debating ideas matters more than ever. This weekend The Built Environment Trust will be taking part in the Battle of Ideas session 'Igniting the spark of creativity in Brexit Britain' at The Barbican, London, represented by CEO Colin Tweedy.
The prospect of leaving the EU has left the British art and architecture world uncertain and concerned as to the impact this will have on the sector's future. However, for some, this may be seen as an opportunity to move out of the comfort zone, free themselves from perceived shackles of EU bureaucracy, and capture new audiences and ideas. Which side might you come down on? Find out if the panel can move your thoughts on...
– Munira Mirza, advisor of arts and philanthropy and former deputy Mayor of London for education and culture.
– John McRae, director of Orms
– Colin Tweedy, CEO of The Built Environment Trust
– Austin Williams, senior lecturer at Department of Architecture at Kingston University (Chair)
This event will be taking place Saturday 28 October, 2.00pm - 15.30pm in room Frobisher 4-6 at the Barbican. Get your tickets here.
The event is organised by the Institute of Ideas and supported by The Built Environment Trust.
