Culture Shift delivered the State of Play conference in partnership with New Writing South on 19 June 2012 at The Old Market, Hove. The day mixed big ideas with policy updates and explored how arts and culture can play a central role in young people’s lives, in and out of school. At a time of significant flux and new directions, the day offered those working across arts, culture and learning, an opportunity to reflect on the current state of play.
