Can culture be life changing?
Rosie Millard has spent her career reporting on the world of the arts in the UK. But what is important? Is it Nicole Kidman glittering on the red carpet or the Neo naturists dancing naked in a piece of performance art? Is subsidised art more worthy than that of the commercial world? And how did Hull turn itself into the art capital of the UK in 2017? All these and more will be up for discussion and dissection.
Rosie Millard OBE is the CEO of Children and the Arts, a national charity which works to engage all children with great art access across the country. She is also Chair of BBC Children in Need, a Trustee of Opera North, was Chair of Hull City of Culture 2017 and is a patron of Hull Truck Theatre.
Rosie Millard was the BBC’s Arts Correspondent for a decade, following which she was Arts Editor of the New Statesman and a profile writer at The Sunday Times and she has made documentaries for radio and television.
