Culture, Creativity and the Academy: Exploring the New Normal Conference

Event Details

14th July, 2015
Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Milton Court

When TCCE (formerly LCACE) was established a decade ago, whilst there were some strong and very exciting partnerships between the Arts, Cultural and Creative industries and Higher Education, such work was arguably more the exception than the rule. Now, however, it is the case that collaborations between these sectors are developing apace and that such work is increasingly becoming the ‘new normal’.

Culture, Creativity and the Academy: Exploring the New Normal, presented in partnership with Guildhall School of Music & Drama, set out to examine to what extent this actually is the case and if so what does ‘the new normal’ look like, what are its characteristics, who’s doing it, how does it come about and why is it important, particularly now.

Culture, Creativity and the Academy: Exploring the New Normal was attended by those working in academia, the cultural and creative industries, policy-makers and those interested in the role of research and innovation more widely.
