Creativity Counts

4 February, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Creativity counts – here’s why

A creative life is a better life. It leads to more innovation, smarter business and better relationships.

You know this – you’re a member of 26.

But many people don’t think of creativity as essential to life or to business. Sir John Sorrell, Paul Roberts and Darren Henley are on a mission to change that. They’ve made their case in a new book, The Virtuous Circle: Why Creativity and Cultural Education Count.

On 4 February, we’ll be hosting a unique event in London to hear what they have to say. They’ll be setting out the benefits of a cultural education, and arguing that creativity deserves a place in education on the same level as literacy and numeracy.

Sir John Sorrell is a revered figure in the creative industries. He’s led Newell and Sorrell, the Design Council, CABE, the University of the Arts London, the Sorrell Foundation and the London Design Festival. Paul Roberts is an educator who advised the last government. Darren Henley balancing writing reports on cultural education for the current government with his day job as managing director of Classic FM.

Tickets are £10 for members and their guests, and £15 otherwise. Just click here to book your place. We look forward to seeing you there.
