Culture & Heritage: economic impact, common errors and new ways forward

Fellowship Event / Online

 -  | GMT Standard Time


  • Arts and society

Join us for this incredibly interesting discussion about the various issues surrounding arts and humanities.

Our speaker Murray Pittock will address a wide range of important arts and humanities issues, including measurements, co-dependencies, analysis and appreciation.

His perspective on Arts & Humanities may strike a chord with the views delivered at the MCICH Network event “Arts and Humanities: National Essentials” which took place a few years ago. In framing his comments he will also discuss his current research work.

His address will cover four projects which led to KE Champion award in placemaking, XR, economic impact and facilities development. The discussion will also touch on tourism, branding, produce, festivals and facilities. Additionally, there will be talk of the impact of policy such as levelling up, regional inclusive growth and sticky visits. New ways forward will also be discussed, such as cultural capital, psychic income, intangibles and the value of the brand.

There will be time towards the end of the event for audience Q&A, where you can put forward any questions you may have.
