Our second Colloquy will be held on Monday 12 August 2013 at 2pm in the Newpark Hotel, Kilkenny. This colloquy will get down to brass tacks about what is meant by ‘evidence’ and what does it matter in the context of the arts and policy-making. The Guest Speaker is Dr. Dave O'Brien from City University London. He is particularly interested in how we determine issues attached to urban cultural policy and cultural value. The respondent for this colloquy will be Professor John O'Hagan from the Department of Economics, TCD. Details here.
A Discussion Paper about the ideas explored across the series of colloquies written by Tara Byrne, NCFA Colloquia curator, is available here.
