Event overview

In late 2017 Douglas delivered the keynote address at the Culture Academy Singapore’s Annual Thought Leadership Conference. The conference theme was Reviving and Revitalising Cities and Space Through Arts and Culture.

His address was well received and the major outcomes of that presentation and subsequent paper will be discussed at this CEDA Trustee morning tea.

At CEDA boardroom briefings Trustees hear from an informed, expert guest speaker in a private, small group setting. Invitations to boardroom briefings are a valued benefit of CEDA membership.
