Dancing broke out at the launch of CMCI’s Towards Cultural Democracy: Promoting Cultural Capabilities for Everyone report.
Headed by Dr Nick Wilson, our Reader in Creativity, Arts and Cultural Management, the report is the culmination of a 15-month research project that presents a vision of how to build a cultural life for the UK that is: “valuable for everyone, and made by all”.
The report makes 14 recommendations in all, targeted at national government departments and agencies, private trusts and foundations, local cultural policy makers, together with arts and cultural organisations.
Nick’s co-authors are Dr. Jonathan Gross, Teaching Fellow and Researcher at CMCI and Dr. Anna Bull, Lecturer in Sociology, University of Portsmouth (formerly Researcher, CMCI).
Full details are available at http://www.kcl.ac.uk/Cultural/-/Projects/Towards-cultural-democracy.aspx from which the complete report can also be downloaded. There is also an article about the report in Arts Professional: http://www.artsprofessional.co.uk/magazine/article/creating-cultural-democracy
