“Should every school aim to offer cultural opportunities to their students? I find it astonishing that in one of the wealthiest nations in the world we even have to have this debate.”
Dave Moutrey is the Director and Chief Executive of HOME. Manchester’s newest cultural centre, it houses two theatres, five cinema screens and a contemporary art gallery, and brings Manchester’s much‑loved Library Theatre Company and the Cornerhouse cinema under one roof. It was Moutrey who spearheaded the move of the organizations into this new, purpose‑built venue, which opened earlier this year.
