    As Greater Manchester prepares to go to the polls to select its first directly elected Mayor, an expert panel discusses the implications of the Northern Powerhouse on the city’s arts and culture.  This free event, chaired by Felicity Goodey CBE, invites audience members to pose their own questions, drawing on the combined knowledge and experience of five of the region’s cultural leaders.  Please note that all panellists are appearing in an individual capacity, and not as representatives of their respective organisations.
