Disadvantage and cultural engagement
Highlights from our research into disadvantage and cultural engagement, and an overview of the Cultural Capital Conference on 17 March 2015
On March 17th, the Goldsmith Centre in Farringdon opened its doors to host A New Direction’s Cultural Capital Conference. The event was an opportunity for AND to finally bring together a series of seemingly disparate, yet deeply interconnected pieces of work.
More generally, however, it was an opportunity for AND to finally give voice to a discourse that has been so fundamental to our mission in the past few months, ever present in our internal discussions and yet quite difficult to articulate in a cohesive way – that of the impact of disadvantage on access to and engagement with arts and culture.
