Role of Artists and Art in the Public Realm, in Communities, in the environment
Do we need art in public places or artists in public places?
Should art and artists comment on political issues such as Brexit and IndyRef 2?

Are artists visionaries? Are artists truth seekers?
Does art need to be beautiful? Define beautiful?
