New Themes for a New Year

The arts are HUGE – hugely important, hugely popular, and hugely diverse. We could talk about art all day, every day, until we die, and still not cover everything there is to say. Over 2015 we divided the year into bite-size chunks and took action through the Twelve Month Artful Pledge. In 2016, we will look a little deeper into different styles of art, as well as some of the many areas where art intersects with other disciplines and human endeavours.


Here’s what we'll be talking about over the coming year:

January

Business and the Arts

February

Diverse Cultural Experiences

March

Health and the Arts

April

The Long-Standing Traditions: Spoken Word/Oral Histories and Craft

May

Activism and the Arts

Dance

Music

August

September

October

Academia and the Arts

November
