    Joint seminar to discuss the role of the cultural industries in creating sustainability prosperity

    This is a joint seminar that brings together the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity (CUSP) researchers Jonathan Ward and Kate Oakley, University of Leeds, and Graeme Evans from the Art & Design Research Institute (ADRI), Middlesex University to discuss the role of the cultural industries in creating sustainability prosperity.

    Jonathan Ward is the post-doctoral research assistant for CUSP’s arts and culture theme, based in the School of Media and Communication at the University of Leeds. His research focuses on issues around cultural policy, cultural labour and culture-led urban policy.

    Kate Oakley is the CUSP co-investigator leading the arts and culture theme. She has written extensively on cultural policy including in her most recent book “Culture, Economy and Politics: The Case of New Labour” (with David Hesmondhalgh, David Less and Melissa Nisbett). Kate is Professor of Cultural Policy at the School of Media and Communication, University of Leeds.

    Graeme Evans is Professor Urban Cultures & Design and Director of the Art & Design Research Institute.

    This research is based on projects working in east and north London (Cultural Planning for Sustainable Communities; Hydrocitizenship) as well as recently completed studies for the DCMS (The Contribution of Culture to Place Shaping).
