A Get Creative Debate: Should young people study the arts?

A BBC Event at Hay presented by What Next? and the CLA

Venue: BBC Tent

In a time of increasing pressures, priorities and testing, our young people are often told to prioritise some subjects over others, to focus on getting a job and to think about the financial implications of the choices they make. Given this backdrop, is studying the arts the right choice?

Leading education and cultural professionals including Professor Dai Smith, Chair of the Arts Council of Wales, Kevin Jones, Headmaster of St John's College School Cambridge; Lizzie Crump from Cultural Learning Alliance (CLA) and Sam Smith from Transition Tradition discuss the value of arts, culture and creativity to our young people and ask whether we're offering them the right choices.
