Webinar: Creative places & new localism
How can cultural organisations and local communities work together towards recovery?
This is a recording of a session from our conference Covid-19: Changing Culture? in November 2021. The conference shared emerging findings from our Covid-19 research project and discussed implications with practitioners and policymakers.
Throughout the crisis it has become clear that place-based partnerships and local cultural resources have been pivotal in helping cultural communities respond, recover and rebuild. In this session we share and discuss findings from our research and explore the case for investment in local initiatives, and discuss the lessons learned from those who got it right.
Chaired by Eliza Easton. Speakers: Benjamin Dunn, University of Leeds; Karen Dick, Creative Scotland; Abigail Gilmore, University of Manchester; Pam Johnson, Leeds City Council; Lindsay Taylor, University of Salford.
