We are delighted to invite you to Pembroke College’s fourteenth William Pitt seminar entitled “Affording the Arts: The Cost of Culture”. The seminar will be held on Friday 11 October 2019 and, as last year, will be held in the McGrath Theatre at St Catharine’s College.

Drinks and dinner in Pembroke will follow the seminar.

Our Chair this year is Sir Nicholas Serota, Chair of Arts Council England since 2017, and Director of Tate between 1988 and 2017. During his directorship, Tate opened Tate St Ives (1993) and Tate Modern (2000, expanded in 2016), redefining the Millbank building as Tate Britain (2000). Tate also broadened its field of interest to include 20th century photography, film, performance and occasionally architecture, as well as collecting from Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

The confirmed speakers are:

Moira Sinclair – Chief Executive of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Chair of Clore Leadership

Henry Howard-Sneyd – Sotheby’s Chairman of Asian Art, Europe and Americas, and Lead Auctioneer globally in Asian Art

Sir Nicholas Hytner – Theatre and Film Director and Film Producer, Director of the Bridge Theatre in London, previous head of the National Theatre.

The seminar will start with presentations from the speakers followed by a panel discussion based on questions from the audience drawn from the College’s alumni, Corporate Partners and students as well as government, media, and academic institutions.
