A couple of months ago the lovely Lisa Gaye Wright invites me along to see her brand new musical, Botox or Bust. So yesterday afternoon I headed out of London and down to the coast to see a workshop performance.
Brexit, the topic that has dominated British news for the last two years, and the topic that we all love AND hate talking about. With Parliament heating up about trade deals, back stops and the Irish border where does that leave the arts? What does Brexit actually mean for the British culture sector?
Do you know one thing that really gets my goat? When people/organisations say that Arts Education isn’t needed in our schools. BOULDERDASH! Recently an OFSTED inspector declared that having arts subjects (drama, music, art etc) taught in schools was giving students unrealistic expectations about having a career in the arts.
