The Role of Art in Society

Our next meeting will be a discussion on ‘The role of Art in society’.
Thursday 11th June 7.30pm at the White Rock Hotel

The role of art in society has become stronger and stronger since the industrial revolution. So what is it about art that enables it to enrich our lives and what will be the impact of the increasing democratisation of Art? We are surrounded by music, images, videos and architecture that create the environment we live in and are all the result of artistic endeavour

If Art is the act of imagining how the world might be, then perhaps one day in the not too distant future it will be the artists who lead in managing the world. So where do we draw the line between Art, Society and the technology that makes it possible?

Please bring along your opinions for this interesting debate.
