We are offering you an exclusive opportunity to talk to Dame Liz Forgan, Chair, Arts Council England, in a live chat online at 12 noon today, Thursday 20 September.

We announced earlier this month that when her tenure ends in January 2013, she will be succeeded by Sir Peter Bazalgette, so this is the perfect opportunity to chat to her about the changes ahead if you have a burning question. 

Join the live chat and submit your question now:

Alternatively, if you would like to follow the chat as an observer only, we will be updating our Arts Council blog live as the chat takes place - please visit

Please note, live chat requires you to have both Flash and JavaScript enabled on your computer. If you are having problems accessing live chat, please email us on with the details.

This is the third in a series of regular live chats in which we invite our audience to talk with key representatives from the Arts Council to find out more about what we do, and how we are spending public money to achieve our mission of 'great art for everyone'.

Dame Liz Forgan has featured in a previous live chat, and so has Arts Council Chief Executive, Alan Davey. Transcripts of the online discussions are available to download from our website.

The launch of this series, along with activities such as our annual State of the Arts conference and Alan Davey's regular blog in The Huffington Post, is a part of our ongoing drive to become a more open, transparent and accountable public body.
