Food For Thought - The Creative Case For Diversity

The Yorkshire region has many ingredients, many foods –sweet and savoury, basic and refined, popularist and rare. They are all flavourful.

The Arts Council England’s Creative Case approach requires us to use our ingredients in new ways – putting different ingredients centre stage, combining them in new formations, both expected and unexpected.

Food for Thought gave us the space to do this.

It gave us time to come together, over food, to discuss and deepen our knowledge, our opinions and our perspectives around the creative case, around diversity and difference, around the arts in Yorkshire and beyond.

What is the creative case for diversity?
