#CulturalValue: A Twitter experiment
Dr Dave O’Brien will be running a twitter experiment about cultural value on 18th and 19th of July.
Cultural Value has become an important but contested term for academics, organisations and funders working in the area of arts and culture. Cultural Value is part of a large scale AHRC project, a university commission and is a term that is widely used in media and funding discussions, particularly in this era of reduced state investment into the arts.
However the term seems to have lots of different meanings, a point which Dr O’Brien has picked up on in several of his recent pieces of work. He is now running a short experiment on twitter to try to understand what the term means and how people interact with both the term and others using the term on twitter.
He’s asking people to tweet their definitions of Cultural Value to #culturalvalue as well as commenting on other people’s ideas that are on this #
He’ll post some of the results on this blog as well as incorporating them into a book chapter he is currently working on.
Hopefully lots of people will get involved and give an insight into what they think #culturalvalue means
