“The UK has long enjoyed, and benefited from, the enormous talent and imagination of our artists and creators who ignore traditional boundaries and explore the world from different perspectives. DACS is looking forward to joining the Battle of Ideas for the first time this year with the hope that we can do the same.”

"Participating in the Battle was a little like entering a Bombay train at rush hour - it's a plunge into a swirl of wildly differing notions of how people should arrange themselves in a really tight situation. When you eventually emerge, you find that you're in a different place from where you started - and that you've been thoroughly energised from the journey. I can't wait to take the trip again next year."
