Event description

Description

Come and join us for a panel discussion led by Tony Greenham, Director of Economy, Enterprise and Manufacturing at the RSA.

The discussion will explore what is meant by 'Power to Create', and the value that creative communities can add both in terms of the arts and a broader social purpose. Tony will also draw on the findings of the RSA's recently published Inclusive Growth Commission report and consider what that might mean in a local context.

On the panel:

  • Dr Beverley Hawkins, Director of Education, Management/Organization Studies & Senior Lecturer, Leadership/Organization Studies, University of Exeter Business School
  • Dr Rebecca Hillman, Lecturer, Drama, College of Humanities, University of Exeter

The event is supported by the Innovation, Impact and Business team, University of Exeter, and the south-west RSA Fellowship.
