20th International Conference on Cultural Economics
This event is running from 26 June 2018 until 29 June 2018
Led by the Association for Cultural Economics International (ACEI), the 20th International Conference on Cultural Economics will be hosted by RMIT University, Melbourne.
ACEI2018 aims to provide a forum for discussion on a range of issues impacting the arts and culture and for the first time the conference will also address issues related to sport. The conference brings together a range of academics from a number of disciplines that share an interest in empirically motivated research on topics related to the arts and culture such as creative industries, creative cities, art markets and artistic labour to name a few. The conference also welcomes the insights and contributions from professionals, arts practitioners, policy makers and arts administrators in developing a fruitful dialogue that connects theory with practice.
The ICC’s Head of Research Kerry Wilson has been invited to present a paper at the conference entitled Negotiating the Values-based Community of Practice in Socially-engaged Cultural Work. Kerry will discuss some of the operational complexities, moral ambiguities and professional implications of cross-sector cultural practice and instrumental cultural policy, drawing upon data collected as part of her Instrumental Values research, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council 2017-19.
