PANEL DISCUSSION: Mark the launch of Cities, Cultural Policy and Governance and join us for a panel discussion focusing on the role museums can and must play in today’s novel interweavings of art, craft and commerce.

One of the founding principles of the V&A was to ensure that the fruits of cultural production were more accessible to the general public, in order to inspire future generations of British designers and manufacturers. Now, over a century and a half later, museums face similar challenge.

Introductory Remarks by Martin Roth, Director
Presentation of the volume by co-editors Helmut Anheier and Y. Raj Isar
Presentation by Kate Oakley, Professor of Cultural Policy, University of Leeds
Presentation by Tony Travers, Director of the Greater London Group at The London School of Economics and Political Science
