ACE Chief Darren Henley on Creativity: Why It Matters

In January we welcomed Arts Council England’s Chief Executive, Darren Henley, to give a very special keynote speech on the importance of creativity, in the Arts and beyond. Before Darren took to the stage, we had a beautiful musical introduction from sitarist Roopa Panesar and tabla maestro Kousic Sen. We also took the opportunity to celebrate the amazing tenure of our founder Prashant Nayak, who retired earlier that month. Darren was able to present Prashant with a small token of the organisation’s gratitude on stage following his talk.

Here is some of the amazing feedback we had from the event:
“Talk from Darren Henley (Arts Council England) and supporting performance hit the mark, with the music and lighting setting the scene for Darren’s positive talk about creativity and the future in education and life.”
“Quite extraordinary performance and speech!”
“Fantastic musical artists and an inspiring speech by Darren Henley”
“Uplifting and positive”
