Part of Arts Council's State of the Arts leadership programme, No Boundaries conference - taking place in February 2014 in Bristol and York - has announced its first speakers.

About the conference

No Boundaries will provide a new model for generating discussion amongst leaders and innovators in arts and culture to help find positive approaches to influence change and support the sectors’ growth. Organisers are encouraging delegates to submit ideas for debate before the conference, to self organise discussions during the conference alongside the formal programme, and to feed ideas back into the conference as it takes place.

Speakers announced so far

The first wave of speakers are:

RSA chair Vikki Heywood
Bigga Fish CEO Nii Sackey
poet Luke Wright
9/11 Memorial and Museum director Alice M. Greenwald
Birmingham Library director Brian Gambles
National Arts Strategies President Russell Willil Taylor
Google’s strategist Abigail Posner

Finally, thanks to digital specialists xHumed, who adapt ideas from revolutionalry thinkers in history to modern day topics, visionary architect Cedric Price will present a unique PechaKucha presentation.

More information

The event will take place on 25 and 26 February 2014, in both Bristol and York. Find out more information on tickets and locations.
