Sir Ken Robinson delivers The Cohan Lecture 2016


Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

The Cohan Lecture holds up for question the simple provocation ‘What Matters?’ and seeks to uncover a very personal response from some of the most influential and inventive minds of our time.

For this year’s lecture, we are delighted to welcome back to The Place, the internationally renowned creative champion, Sir Ken Robinson PhD. His discussion will centre on why he believes dance is as important as maths in education.

Sir Ken Robinson is a recognised leader in the development of creativity, innovation and human resources in education and business. His TED talk from 2006 entitled How Schools Kill Creativity is the most listened to TED talk of all time with more than 38 million views. His most recent book, Creative Schools, was published last year.

The Cohan Lecture series was launched in 2015 in honour of Robert Cohan CBE, founding artistic director of The Place, to celebrate his 90th Birthday.  He has been instrumental in changing the map of dance in the UK, and it is no coincidence that he is frequently revered as the founding father of British contemporary dance.

Times: 11am
Venue: at The Place
