Cecilia receives a British Academy Rising Star Engagement Award
Cecilia Dinardi has been awarded a British Academy Rising Star Engagement Award (BARSEA) to organise, together with other staff members, a series of engagement events under the title Urban Cultural Policy and Creativity: A Platform for Creative City Exchanges between Policy and Academic Communities.
The proposed international seminar seeks to bring the academic debate on creative cities to engage with the international cultural policy development community over a one day roundtable discussion at City University London in September 2016. The event will bring together early career researchers, established scholars (including experts from Latin America, Africa and Asia) and postgraduate students with international cultural policy development agencies (such as UNESCO, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Goethe-Institut, British Council, Danish Agency for Culture) to discuss the challenges and opportunities for cultural and creative economies to address local needs towards fostering more just and less unequal creative cities. The aim is to allow collaborative networks being built that can lead to future partnerships between policy agencies and academic institutions globally.
This British Academy scheme offers an opportunity for early career researchers who have established their academic credentials and want to enhance their own skills and career development by playing a leading part in enabling the engagement of others through the organisation of engagement events.
More information and an invitation to join the events will be posted on this blog closer to the event date.
