HeART of the Matter is a programme of Speaker and Discussion events held 2 – 3 times a year on themes that bring together artists, policy and decision makers and members of our communities to explore relevant issues. Towards the end of our Great Place Scheme in 2020 this will culminate in a 3-day Symposium, open to all.
