Live broadcast of Farnham Maltings and Arts Council England's (South East) event exploring what practical actions might increase the breadth and range of people making and seeing art particularly in relation to disability, ethnicity, and socio-economic background.
Things to do before we die will examine successful initiatives within the arts, share ideas and examples from other sectors such as sport and heath, and focus on actions and pledges that could make a difference.
One ambition for the day is to identify alliances, new partnerships and discussions that might prompt planning towards diversity funding streams Arts Council will be launching in the new year.
The event will feature a speech from Arun Kang of Sporting Equals as well as an exciting range of speakers who will discuss the challenges and opportunities of diversity in other sectors.
