Cultural and Creative Industries Exchange presents, The Art Of Risk
“A One-day conference brought to you by Cultural and Creative Industries Exchange and Dare, the groundbreaking partnership between University of Leeds and Opera North.”
“We all take risks. Whether we are an avant-garde theatre company putting on a new production, a medical professional weighing up a tricky clinical decision, or just a normal person going about their day to day life, the decisions we make contain some degree of risk. But on what basis do we make these decisions? How do we judge whether a risk is worth taking? What forms of rationality or irrationality guide our decision-making? What draws some people to take risks and not others? The ways we approach risk vary enormously. This one day event begins with the simple premise that we have much to learn from each other.”
