The University of Manchester will host the first workshop of the AHRC network. The workshop will focus on networks of knowledge and interaction between higher education and arts and cultural organisations and institutions. We are particularly keen in gathering a better understanding of the range of partnerships and collaborations that take place between HE and public or third sector organisations in the arts and cultural sphere.
The seminar will consider relationships, practices and knowledge exchange between higher education and the arts infrastructure of the city and the important role played by local arts networks. It will also look at the impact of individuals (and leadership) in shared roles between higher education, public policy and arts and cultural organisations. Other dimensions include the presence of arts and cultural institutions within higher education institutions, shared spaces and partnerships amongst arts organisations and higher education and collaborative systems for professional, talent and skills development.
Confirmed Keynote speakers:
Dr. Maria Balshaw, Joint Director of the Manchester Art Gallery and the Whitworth Art Gallery
Bruno Verbegt, Associate Professor, University of Antwerp, Director, Culture, Sport and Youth, Stad Antwerp
