Sir Peter Bazalgette will give his inaugural lecture as Chair of Arts Council England at 9.30am tomorrow Wednesday 20 March, from London’s RSA.

The event is the first in a series of State of the Arts seminars, to be delivered by the RSA and ACE in an effort to explore ideas for a new political economy for arts and culture in England.

The series has evolved from ACE’s annual State of the Arts conference – last held in February 2012.

The RSA will be providing live audio and video streams from the event – visit their website from 9.20am to tune in. Suggested hashtags for Twitter users are #RSAACE and #SOTA13.
