On 5 November, ICC Head of Research, Dr. Beatriz García, will deliver a seminar in São Paulo on the cultural legacies of Olympic and Paralympic Games as a guest of the Permanent Forum of Knowledge Management, Comunication and Memory (Fórum Permanente de Gestão do Conhecimento, Comunicação e Memória).
The Forum is a collective initiative consisting of Aberje (the Brazilian Association for Business Journalism), the University of São Paulo’s School of Communication and Arts, Memória Votorantim and the Museu da Pessoa.
Each year, the Forum hosts two international seminars designed to foster knowledge exchange and academic research within Brazil. Having evaluated the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad and conducted primary research at every Games edition since Sydney 2000, Dr. García will offer her thoughts on the potential for Olympic and Paralympic cultural programmes to leave lasting legacies as Brazil prepares for its own year as Games host in 2016.Add to Google Calendar
