Debate: Full STE(A)M Ahead?

June 10, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free, booking required

Series: City Summer Sounds Music Festival

The Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan MP, has consistently argued that pupils are “held back” by an historical overemphasis on the arts and that this risks restricting their future career paths. How accurate is this claim? Does this position reflect a downgrading of creativity or simply a necessary economic refocus for future sustainability?

There has been active promotion of STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths), but would the addition of ‘arts’ to this core be desirable? Where does music fit into this debate? Is STEAM necessary or just a lot of hot air?
