The Impact of Culture: Connecting Cities of Culture and Universities

Josine Opmeer - Research Development Manager, University of Hull
Marianne Lewsley-Stier - Head of Culture Campus, University of Hull

Hans-Peter Degn - Teaching Associate Professor, School of Communication and Culture, Aarhus University

Culture is international and crosses boundaries. Most global cities, regions and universities engage in cultural activities and exchanges. Culture in the city or culture on the campus offers ample opportunities for local universities and cultural organisations to work together, build new collaborations, strategic partnerships, generate new interdisciplinary research ideas, co-produce projects and bids, generate impact and public engagement. All these opportunities are often taken forward by the RMA community, be it an impact or knowledge exchange officer, research or business development manager, research and cultural activity planner. They will work together with academics and make things happen.

Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to work in groups to discuss current level of involvement and collaborations in arts and culture in their cities and regions. Do they work well and what would they be able to do differently after having listened to the presentations? Are there any future opportunities looming and how can these be meaningfully put to use driving forward a strategic research and impact agenda? Each group will be asked to summarise their key points and findings and these will be written up and distributed after the conference.
