Prof Katy Shaw to speak at RSA Fellows Festival 2023

Director of Creative Communities Katy Shaw will deliver a keynote talk at the annual Royal Society of Arts conference in June 2023.

Imagine – if things go right, what would our world look like?

What could go right?

The RSA Fellows Festival 2023 centres around these questions, and will feature a talk from Director of Creative Communities Prof Katy Shaw speaking alongside other changemakers like Darren Henley (Arts Council England), Kwame Kwei-Armah (New Vic Theatre), Rebecca Solnit (Author) and others. A full list of speakers is available online now.

The festival brings together prominent figures from the worlds of academia, business, civil society, government, arts, and culture, together with RSA fellows. The day will focus on how to enable people, places and the planet to flourish in harmony, by looking at issues such as climate change, art and culture, and the societal shifts needed to create change.

A key theme of this year’s festival is the role of the creative sector, and in particular how we can collectively unleash the potential of culture and creativity for people and places. Katy will speak on these vital themes to a cross-sector, interdisciplinary audience at RSA House in London on Saturday 17 June 2023, sharing information about the Creative Communities programme, our recent report By All, For All: The Power of Partnership, and our upcoming phase two research activities. Creative Communities is committed to developing the potential for arts and humanities through fostering and enabling creative communities. The programme’s mission is to capture the inspiring explosion of collaboration and connectivity that can unlock the full potential of our great arts and culture.

You can find more information about the event online, including registering for tickets, and details about Katy Shaw and her current research is available on her profile page.
