ICC Head of Research, Dr Beatriz García, has been awarded one of only six Advanced Olympic Research Grants by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), for a research project titled ‘The value of global cultural policy-making: Building bridges between Olympic cities and the Olympic Movement through transnational cultural narratives’.
The project will document the implementation of the first IOC Cultural Action Plan during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
Dr García has been accredited to act as official academic observer of the 2016 Games and will help to shape the first Olympic cultural observers programme in Rio de Janeiro, as well as its handover to Tokyo, host of the 2020 Games.
Updates on the project will be published here on the ICC website, but will also be available on Dr García’s personal website here and via the Culture @ the Olympics blog.
