Please join us for the launch event of the Young Fabian Arts + Culture Network with Grayson Perry and Tom Watson MP.
We will be discussing the importance of the Arts and Culture in our political discourse and policy design, and how politics influences artists in their work and in the way they carry out their art. This will be a great opportunity to bring the Fabian Society back to its artistic roots and establish a political conversation about policy that includes the Arts and our diverse cultures
