6th Nordic Conference on Cultural Policy Research – NCCPR 2013
Contact: Associate professor, Ph.D. Trine Bille, Department of Innovation and Organizational Economics, CBS
Theme: Cultural Policy in a Transformed Cultural Landscape
The cultural sector is in motion. The classic cultural institutions are being redefined and new types of institutions have appeared. The mediatization, including social media, that blurs the boundaries between producers and consumers, have created new types of artists, new art forms, new arenas and new forms of cultural communication and identity formation. But how does cultural policy follow along? What do these transformations entail for cultural policy and the theoretical foundation of cultural policy? These changes are the theme for the 6th Nordic conference on cultural policy research that will focus on the consequences of the mediatization and digitalization of culture with its diversity of forms and participation.
The purpose of the conference is to gather researchers as well as cultural policy administrators from the Nordic countries to discuss cultural policy research and practice.
At the conference about 50 research papers will be presented.
Key note speakers:
• Professor Bruno S. Frey, University of Warwich: How the internet may affect the arts and cultural policy
• Associate Professor Peter Duelund, University of Copenhagen: Nordic Cultural Policy at the dawn of the 21th century: Imaginations, trends and new challenges
Panel discussion on cultural policy research and practice:
• Panel participants: Stig Hjarvard, Sigrid Røyseng, Ole Marius Hylland, Ellen Aslaksen, Leif Jakobsson, Mikael Schultz
