Hosted by the Institute of Applied Ethics, in collaboration with Liverpool’s Institute of Cultural Capital, this research seminar will explore the ethical implications of appropriating arts and culture as a form of ‘public good’.
As UK City of Culture 2017, Hull engaged in its own strategic process of aligning cultural and creative assets with broader urban policy agendas including economic and social regeneration.
Drawing upon research funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council on professional ethics in socially engaged cultural work, the event will invite reflections and spirited debate from members of Hull’s cultural policy and research community.
