Activity: Talk or presentation types › Invited talk
A special event organised by Manchester University as part of their London based programme of events at the RSA, London. They invited alumni and guest speakers to join a panel debate on the question of the responsible artist: should an artist, the work they create and their actions hold a moral responsibility for their audiences and wider society? The panel included alumna and actress Jessica Knappet (star of Channel 4 comedy Drifters), Professor James Thompson from The University of Manchester (founder of the www.inplaceofwar.net project), alumnus and composer Olly Fox and contemporary artist Anneke Pettican (from the international artist collective Brass Art www.brassart.org.uk). They were joined by 100+ guests. The event reached thousands outside of the venue across the Twittersphere through lively social media chatter.
