Join us for a discussion among leading international voices in the arts on the ideas and questions posed in Art and the World After This.
Art and the World After This by David Maggs
Driven by a sense of urgency and optimism, Art and the World After This makes the case for grounding the arts firmly in action as a powerful force for creating a better world. The report explores four distinct but interrelated disruptions which have shaken our world — the disruption of activity (pandemic), society (social unrest), industry (digital revolution), and the world (climate crisis) — as well as the unique value art brings to society.
In this timely report, Metcalf Innovation Fellow David Maggs explores how the arts can serve a more applied and accountable role in society as a catalyst for meeting the profound challenges we face.
The Metcalf Foundation invites you to join us for this virtual report launch, which will feature a presentation by David — sharing key ideas from the paper — and a thought-provoking panel discussion.
Hear from leading voices in the arts
We are delighted to host a panel conversation with leading international voices in the arts to discuss key questions posed by the paper as well as the wider implications for the arts sector and beyond.
Note: Zoom details will be shared closer to the event.
