The Art Police were first seen keeping an eye on delegates during the major IETM international theatre conference in Glasgow (November 2010) – making sure they didn’t overdose on culture, or miss out on the delights of Greyhound Racing or Bingo. The force is currently available to monitor all Arts Events, especially Exhibition openings or Major Cultural Events. They have the power to distribute Artistic Licences, give informed opinion on artistic quality, and issue Cultural Truancy Tickets to those who miss the point entirely.
