David Rushton

Lecture and launch of an idea

15 November 2012

David Rushton, Director of The Institute of Local Television, gave a presentation on his practice in arts programming for local television and explained the significance of the governmentís revised local TV licensing policy. The lecture explored the political positioning of the local and how this can lead to self-initiated and self-organised networks that can promote local democracy and participation. Following on from this, there will be an introduction to a proposal to create an arts television programme for the region, and an opportunity for West Midlands-based art organisations and artists to sign up to a collaborative partnership.
