Event description

Description

Research discussion exploring cultural value and the creative economy. It will be an opportunity to meet Professor Leandro Valiati, one of Brazil’s leading cultural economists, who takes up a post as Visiting Professor in the Economy of Culture at QMUL from beginning of December.


The conversation will focus on Relative Values, an AHRC-funded research project led by Professor Paul Heritage (School of English and Drama) in partnership with Professor Valiati. Bringing together academic and non-academic partners, the research asks how we can measure and strengthen practices and policies that maximise the social and economic value of the arts to individuals and society, particularly in peripheral urban environments. The project aims to contribute to understandings about cultural value and to enable the four participating UK and Brazilian arts organisations to collaborate on testing effective ways to show how the arts can be incubators for creative economy initiatives that develop resilient, low-stress communities.
