The latest article in our partnership with Arts Professional has been published today, entitled ‘Our arts leaders can’t afford to forget politics’. If ethical questions lead us to pick and choose what is right and wrong from an artistic perspective, or to judge the credentials of our corporate funders, where do we stop? Michelle Wright (Programme Director, Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy) calls for more debate about the moral high-ground of art, in the context of what arts organisations need to do to survive and thrive. You can read the article on the Arts Professional website via this link.
