ICC 5th Anniversary Symposium: Full programme now available
Added on Tuesday, October 27th, 2015
In November this year the Institute of Cultural Capital will celebrate five years of researching and engaging with cultural and arts policy.
To mark this milestone, we are hosting a symposium on the 10th of November that will explore the work of the ICC in national and international context.
As part of the event, the ICC’s senior research staff will each deliver a keynote presentation on a topic relating to one of the institute’s four main research strands — with each of these sessions supported by an expert panel of senior academic researchers, policy-makers and practitioners from the domain of cultural policy.
In the day’s first keynote, Dr. Beatriz García, ICC Head of Research for Cultural Policy, will consider the value of longitudinal data gathering and comparative analysis in understanding international cultural policy trends, with expert input on hand from panellists Steve Green (Chair, European Capital of Culture Selection Panel), Diane Dodd (Executive Director, International Institute of Gastronomy, Culture, Arts and Tourism) and Dr. Eleonora Belfiore (Director of Studies, Warwick Commission on the Future of Cultural Value).
Following this, ICC Head of Research for Cultural Leadership, Dr. Kerry Wilson, will be joined by Professor Kate Oakley from the University of Leeds and Alistair Brown from the Museums Association as she discuss her current and future research within the context of key contemporary debates within the cultural policy field, including overt political instrumentalisation of arts and culture; professional ethics in ‘networked’ collaborative cultural work; and implications for workforce diversity and leadership of the sector.
These sessions will be followed, in the afternoon, by a series of parallel sessions covering topics as diverse as digital culture, cultural assets and social value, and the potential for participatory art to improve employability, before a closing keynote speech by Professor Jonothan Neelands of the University of Warwick which will consider future directions for cultural policy as a discipline.
Further information on the date, time and location of the event is also available on the ICC event listing.
