Take Five Questionnaire

The Take Five questionnaire is going to be a series of guest blogs where I ask people working in the creative industries to answer five questions which will take you five minutes to read.  The point of the questions is to find out a little bit about the person, get a couple of bits of advice and have some fun.  So, before I can ask anyone else to answer the questions, I thought it would only be fair to answer them myself!  

In your professional life, what is the single best thing about what you do?

Why the arts matter to me

I was at a conference recently looking at how the creative industries can deal with the cuts in arts funding.  We were put into small working groups and to break the ice, we were asked to tell each other about that moment, that experience which turned us on to the arts.  There were some great stories about pantomimes, school dance groups, listening to music on the radio, visiting a gallery, but this was not just an idle question to get us talking.  We were reminding ourselves why the arts matter.
