Panel debate with:
The relationship between culture, soft power and international leadership will be explored in this panel discussion which will feature key players from across the cultural and creative industries. This event is part of Churchill 2015 – 21st Century Statesmanship Global Leaders Programme, which marks the fiftieth anniversary of Sir Winston Churchill’s death with a wide-ranging programme of events and seminars, around the theme of 21st-century global leadership. The discussion will explore the skills, attributes and experiences that global leaders need in the 21st century and the way in which an understanding of the power of the Arts and culture can support leaders can change the world for the better. It will also link back to Churchill’s own appreciation of the arts, his appeal to common culture and values in wartime, and use of language as soft power to build international coalitions. This event questions the place of culture in worldwide development, and its role in leaders’ response to today’s global challenges from climate change to migration to combatting violent extremism.
