Cultural Transformations – What’s Next? Issues and Challenges for Future Cities of Culture from the evaluation of Hull UK City of Culture 2017
The Culture, Place and Policy Institute are pleased to announce that booking is now open for our conference Cultural Transformations – What’s Next?: the final evaluation of the impacts of Hull UK City of Culture 2017.
We invite you to join us on 19-21 November 2019 for the release of the Hull UK City of Culture 2017 final evaluation report, along with a stimulating programme of insight and debate. Over three days, we will revisit the notion of culture-led urban transformations, encompassing perspectives from academics, practitioners, policy makers, funders and community members, and firmly embracing an international outlook. Questions about immediate impacts sit alongside the investigation of longer-term implications, and the conference explores the challenges for Cities of Cultures to keep the transformative momentum going.
Reflections are offered by Oonagh McGillion (Derry City & Strabane District Council), Claire McColgan (Culture Liverpool) and Martin Green (formerly Hull 2017 Ltd).
Keynote speakers, including film-maker, Sean McAllister and Professor Lynn Froggett (Professor of Psychosocial Welfare, University of Central Lancashire), join panellists from academia and the cultural sector, to consider issues for future urban cultural strategies, ranging from social equity to nurturing local talent and grassroots-led policy-making.
