All our PhD and MA students are invited to a book launch and panel discussion which the centre is putting on in collaboration with the Menzies Centre for Australian Studies and in partnership with the National Centre for Australian Studies, Monash University.
The book is Making Meaning, Making Money, an Anglo-Australian volume edited by Lisa Andersen and Kate Oakley, who is a friend of Lost in CCI.
It will be launched at the event by John Newbigin, cultural entrepreneur and former policy advisor to Labour Party figures Chris Smith, Neil Kinnock and Lord Putnam. The panel will then discuss: “Culture or Coal? Will Creative Industries lead the Australian Economic Recovery? What can the Australian Government learn from Britain’s approach to the arts? And should this be reflected in a Cultural Policy?”
The panelists are:
Professor Kate Oakley, University of the Arts and City University London
Professor David Throsby, Economics, Macquarie University, Sydney
Dr Tony Moore, National Centre for Australian Studies, Monash University, Melbourne
Professor Justin O’Connor, Faculty of Creative Industries, Queensland University of Technology
The event runs from 6-8pm on Wednesday 24 June 2009 at the Council Room, King’s College London. RSVP by 22 June to: firstname.lastname@example.org
