TCCE Annual Conference – Culture, Creativity and the Academy: Exploring the New Normal (Early Bird Tickets now extended until 3rd July 2015)
Date: Tue 14 July 2015
*A limited number of £75 reduced-rate tickets are available, please see below for details.
The timely theme for this year’s TCCE conference, as we celebrate our 10th anniversary, is: Culture, Creativity and the Academy: Exploring the New Normal.
When The Culture Capital Exchange (formerly LCACE) was established a decade ago, whilst there were some strong and very exciting partnerships between the Arts, Cultural and Creative industries and Higher Education, such work was arguably more the exception than the rule. Now, however, it is the case that collaborations between these sectors are developing apace and that such work is increasingly becoming the ‘new normal’.
Culture, Creativity and the Academy: Exploring the New Normal, presented in partnership with Guildhall School of Music & Drama, sets out to examine to what extent this actually is the case and if so what does ‘the new normal’ look like, what are its characteristics, who’s doing it, how does it come about and why is it important, particularly now.
Culture, Creativity and The Academy: Exploring the New Normal aims to create a picture of key developments over the last decade. Furthermore it will start the process of building a roadmap for the decade to come with topics for discussion including:
- Successful partnerships: What models are out there and how do they work?
Culture, Creativity and the Academy: Exploring the New Normal will be of interest to those working in academia, the cultural and creative industries, policy-makers and those interested in the role of research and innovation more widely.
