Strategic impact of contemporary art and heritage

  • Date:

University of Leeds, G19, Old Mining Building, Leeds

Judith King, Arts and Heritage
Peter Sharpe, Kielder Art and Architecture Programme

Based on the presentations by Judith King and Peter Sharpe, this seminar addresses the relationship between contemporary art and heritage in the context of tourism, the visitor economy and regeneration agendas. Furthering previous discussions regarding audience, we aim to discuss methods which may be used to analyse this impact, particularly with regards economic impact which is notoriously difficult for arts organisations to measure.

This seminar is free but booking is required.

This event is part of Intersecting Practices: assessing the role and impact of contemporary art in heritage spaces, a new project funded by Creative and Cultural Industries Exchange, University of Leeds.

The initiative is made up of a group of artists, researchers and curators who are all, in one way or another, involved with projects which incorporate the commissioning and siting of contemporary art in heritage spaces. This working group has been established to explore further the ways in which we might capture, measure and articulate the value of these intersections and will focus on shared interests and questions relating to the challenges of assessing the role and impact of these projects.
