The Future of University/ Cultural Partnerships

Bristol800 Weekender

Fri 11 November 2016,

Universities and cultural organisations are natural partners and – in the South West particularly – there are many examples of successful projects. What makes a successful partnership? And how can we build on the recent years of successful working with new projects and initatives in the future? Bringing together cultural organisations and universities this conference looks at the current state of partnership working in Bath, Bristol and Plymouth – with a case study on HE involvement in Hull City of Culture 2017 – and where this can go in the future.
