What Good Are the Arts?

The title for this workshop is borrowed from a book by John Carey where he discusses what is a work of art. We are going to look at some images and examine our ideas about art and re-visit perennial questions like :

  • what is the value of art?

  • who decides what good art is?

  • is art important?

  • popularity v quality

In discussing those questions we will create many more new questions.

Facilitated by Ms Radmila Sutton (England)
