What can we learn from arts leaders beyond our borders?
We can learn a lot. Especially when those global leaders can help us put our best ideas on the world’s stage.
So join us for the first event in a new series of RamsayTalks called Fresh New Grounds, sponsored by BMO Bank of Montreal. Its four speakers will bring to Toronto some of the most innovative ideas in the arts and civic engagement, offering new perspectives on the changes in producing, curating and promoting the arts and their cities – with lessons for ours.
The first episode of Fresh New Grounds features Ian Dejardin, the Director of the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London; co-curator of the ‘riveting’ 2014 exhibition, From the Forest to the Sea: Emily Carr in British Columbia, as well as Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven, in 2011 – exhibitions that captivated British and European critics and audiences.
Their success will continue – with so many implications around fresh thinking, international partnerships, and cross-cultural collaboration – with another Canadian invasion planned for 2018 in an exhibition of the art of David Milne.
So please join us to hear Ian Dejardin on working in bold new ways to develop new audiences for the arts from Canada, Britain and around the world.
