This one-day conference will bring together speakers from a wide variety of backgrounds across the cultural field in Ireland to consider key changes that have taken place since 2008 in policies, structures and management practices.
The conference will be structured as a series of four moderated discussions between panellists and audience. The aim is to facilitate an inclusive dialogue that actively involves managers and practitioners from the arts and heritage sectors. Sessions will:
- review current cultural policy issues and practices
- examine the fitness of both national and local government structures for the effective delivery of cultural services
- identify new forms of practice across the cultural field that have emerged in response to economic, social and technological change
The focus is on identifying changes to the cultural policy landscape over recent years, some precipitated by economic crisis, others stimulated by social and technological change. Our goal is to stimulate fresh perspectives on the strategic planning of cultural policy for the coming years.
Date: Wednesday 25 June 2014
