A roadmap for the UK's Art Market

“The starting point [of our latest report] was that there was huge interconnectivity and collaboration within our ecosystem, the UK is really good at the whole thing.”

Special guest Paul Hewitt, Director General of The Society of London Art Dealers, joins us, as the organisation publishes a report outlining some of the opportunities and challenges facing the UK art market today.

In this week’s podcast we explore the market landscape following a global pandemic and a post-Brexit economy, whilst considering the importance of skills and self-awareness in the development of careers in the sector.
