Join the Festival of ideas 2-13 November 2020
Join the Centre for Cultural Value’s online Festival of ideas 2-13 November. Ten days of free online events, probing and questioning the value of culture through a series of discussions, debates and hands-on workshops.
The events programme will include workshops and webinars with opportunities to shape our research, hear about research findings and discuss questions of cultural value.
Does everyone place a value on culture and if so, do they value it in the same way? And do people get the opportunity to engage in what they value most? Join our contributors to discuss how can we step outside the norm and reshape what cultural value looks like.
How do you create opportunities for cultural participation in communities through a global pandemic? Join our contributors to hear what they have learnt during this time and how they might have done things differently, so we can gain insights into how we can understand cultural value in the future.
Join us to explore the evidence surrounding culture on referral programmes. We present the findings from our recent? review of research into culture on referral, followed by a discussion to debate the findings and reflect on what this means for practice and policy.
Why do we evaluate our work and who do we do it for? Is it to meet the expectations of funders and stakeholders or to assess a project’s success and capture the difference it makes? Are we missing a trick if we don’t use evaluation as an opportunity to enhance our practice and deepen our learning and critical reflection skills?
Join us for an interactive workshop where we share the introductory stages of our research in this area and invite you to feed in your ideas so we can collectively identify the strengths, challenges and knowledge gaps in practice and research.
How can we better recognise, acknowledge and learn from failure? This interactive session will share findings from the FailSpace project and invite you to propose ways in which the cultural sector can have more honest conversations about its failure.
How does online engagement change the way we value culture? What can we learn from organisations that have found ways to engage with audiences and the community with and without using digital engagement, and what is emerging research telling us?about new?ways of creating value?
