On Wednesday morning I was at the Young Vic in London to take part in the weekly What Next? meeting. Our guest this week was the Director General of the BBC, Tony Hall. While he was working at the Royal Opera House, Lord Hall was an enthusiastic supporter of What Next? and a regular attender at the weekly meetings so it was good to see him return in his new role. I took the opportunity to speak to Tony Hall about the Up for Arts projects Voluntary Arts is running with three BBC local radio stations in the North West of England, in partnership with BBC Outreach. We discussed the potential to link mainstream TV series (such as the forthcoming programme on amateur painting) with such grassroots work to increase arts participation, supported by BBC local radio.

Robin Simpson.
