Why do the arts and culture matter to our society? This is the question that was discussed by a panel at an event hosted by the Exeter University on Monday, March 29. Chaired by the broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby, the evening explored the issue of whether the arts outside London are seen as the poor relation and how universities such as Exeter can support the arts and culture in their region.
A new arts e-zine has been founded in Devon which aims to challenge the creative sector with a collective ragbag of comments, reviews and artwork.
The Devon Guild of Craftsmen and the Centre for Enamel Research (there is such a place?) at the University of the West of England, have pooled their resources to offer 10 free places (usually cost £120 each) on two enamel workshops.
