CRESC and the Institute for Cultural Practices at Manchester are jointly hosting the second meeting in The Knowledge Exchange Network - Participation and Engagement in the Arts Seminar Series.
The Knowledge Exchange Network provides opportunity for cultural researchers, policy makers, managers and practitioners, to explore key issues around participation and engagement in the arts. The Network has been developed by Professor Franco Bianchini (Cultural Planning and Policy Unit) and Leila Jancovich (UK Centre for Events Management) at Leeds Metropolitan University and is commissioned by Arts Council England.
The focus of the second seminar will be on class, ethnicity and taste and consider how they impact on the participation and engagement debate.
There will be presentations from Mike Savage, Professor of Sociology at the University of York and co-author of Culture, Class, Distinction (Routledge 2009) and Baba Israel, Artistic Director of Contact Theatre, Manchester. We will also be joined by Dr Andrew Miles, Senior Research Fellow at the ESRC Centre for Research on Socio- Cultural Change (CRESC) and Dr Abigail Gilmore, Director of the Centre for Arts Management and Cultural Policy at the University of Manchester, who will both be giving us a brief introduction to Manchester and to the University.
