Symposium for research students

REVEALING ALL 2: The second annual symposium for research students

 in cultural policy and management.

12 FEBURARY 2008

City University, Northampton Suite


It is Free but you need to sign up to attend at:



The annual symposia is for research students from all UK universities with a tradition of research in the fields of cultural policy and management.

The intention is to provide participating students with the opportunity to network, collaborate and receive formal feedback from their peers. We expect the symposium to focus on issues close to the hearts of those who make cultural policy and promote its implementation in this country. Papers will include analysis, primary research, comparative case studies, models of policy-making, impact studies etc. Last year the event attracted a number of individuals from government and independent agencies concerned with arts policy who provided feedback on the papers presented.

The sessions at the symposium will cover four themes: cultural value; post-colonial Africa; the creative industries and artists’ development and will include papers by students and key note presentations by John Holden, Kate Oakley and Gerri Morris. Sessions will be chaired by members of staff from City and Goldsmiths. Feedback will be given by presenters’ peers and members of staff present.


We propose publishing the papers presented at the symposia, in City University’s newly re launched, peer-reviewed ejournal, Cultural Policy, Criticism and Management – some of last years’ contributions are here.
