Come and take part in this exciting online seminar focusing on Cities and Cultures.
Their capacity for regeneration allows cities to be long-lived and survive more formal, closed systems, such as nation-states. Today, cities are key sites for the making of new norms and identities, for cultural and institutional change and for their emergence as ‘smart cities’, as sites and models of innovation, where there are opportunities for developing digital cultural services and evolving new strategies for our increasingly connected world. Debates about ‘cultural policy’ therefore may be too limited when considering the future.
What impact will these digital cultural innovations have on knowledge creation and exchange? What roles will universities, cultural organisations and networks, cities play, and how will the local and the global transform each other as we move towards the metaverse?
