Darren Henley
SHOW INFORMATION

DARREN HENLEY – on the benefits that art and culture bring to our lives!

What does music do for you? Why do you read books full of made up stories? What’s all the drama about drama? Does dance do it for you? What’s in a picture or a film that makes you walk round galleries and sit in cinemas? What does it mean to ‘be creative’? What do you do when your work is done? What is this thing called culture? Have you got enough of it? Any other questions?

Chief Executive of Arts Council England, former MD of Classic FM, author of two government reviews into music and cultural education and recipient of an OBE for his services to music, Darren Henley has written The Arts Dividend which looks in depth at key benefits that art and culture bring to our lives: encouraging our nation’s creativity; advancing education; positively affecting health and wellbeing; supporting innovation and technology; providing defining characteristics to villages, towns and cities; contributing to economic prosperity and enhancing England’s reputation for cultural excellence on the global stage.
