Welcome to episode 1 of our new podcast.

We are Dr Sean Power and Leila Johnston. In this episode we wonder: are artists like doctors or school teachers, producing something of value and important that contributes to the smooth running of society? Does the ‘background’ art we find in hotels and new property developments have a value, beyond a kind of ‘serving suggestion’ of what art might be?
