He wrote the first British report on the rise of social entrepreneurship, which has since become a global movement. His report on the potential for the web to generate social change led to the creation of the Social Innovation Camp movement.

    Brabant Stad has the ambition to become cultural capital in 2018. To become cultural capital, cities also have to invest in innovation. Whereas, for instance, the Eindhoven region emphasizes technological innovations, Tilburg wants to invest more in social innovation as part

    of this ambition.

    The web is creating a more open, participative and collaborative approach to culture. In his keynote, Mr. Leadbeater will focus on the role the arts can play in this social innovation process. What’s the role of a changing arts practice in a changing society?
