Loraine Leeson to share a panel with Ken Livingstone and Linda Bellos OBE at the launch of: A Greater London: the GLC story 1981-8

On 2nd December 2015 Loraine Leeson will share a panel with Ken Livingstone and Linda Bellos OBE to speak about the cultural legacy of the Greater London Council. Loraine was a member of the GLC’s Community Arts sub-committee in the 1980s and is outspoken about the usefully different model offered by its arts policies to the top-down, target-driven arts funding structures, which are so familiar today. GLC policies led to a different kind of art, and with new life now being breathed into the Labour movement, younger generations are looking to lessons from the past to learn how things can be done differently.
