On Tuesday I was at the Department for Media, Culture and Sport in London to meet the new Director of Culture, Mick Elliott. Mick, who previously ran the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, replaces Alan Davey who left DCMS to become Chief Executive of Arts Council England. We talked about the ‘Our Creative Talent’ research commissioned by DCMS and ACE and the joint conference we ran at the Barbican at the beginning of July. We also discussed the ‘Find Your Talent’ scheme and the work DCMS is doing in relation to the McMaster excellence agenda and how the voluntary arts might best get involved in these.
