How to organize cultural events and festivals — from projects for the Mayor of London to producing the opening and closing ceremonies of the London Olympic and Paralympic Games? Martin Green CBE will talk about this during the lecture.
Martin Green has spent his working life staging events, festivals, and arts commissions for cities and the people who live in them. Such work has developed a profound passion and knowledge in how best the arts can connect with the lives of cities and their inhabitants. How culture can develop a unique voice for a city in the age of globalization, and how the arts can and must be part of the wider social infrastructure of a city—including its health and social care landscape. During the talk Martin will demonstrate the images and video of the extraordinary events he has produced and the stories behind their creations.
The lecture is a part of the series “Theories and practices of cultural leadership” organized by Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in collaboration with the Cultural and Education section of the British Embassy.
