Cultural Trends International Conference A "Golden Age"? Reflections on New Labour's Cultural Policy and its Post-Recession Legacy
University College London, 12th November 2010
A major opportunity for researchers to consider whether what Tony Blair described as a Golden Age, in a 2007 valedictory speech at the Tate, actually existed.
This conference provides the occasion for cultural commentators, policy analysts and historians to brigade the evidence for cultural achievements since 1997 and consider the relationship between culture and recessions since the 1970s, to bring together ideas for the longer term impacts of what we observe, and to develop hypotheses about cultural policy and activity in the future.
Papers will be presented in three sessions:
New Labour, new policy?
Case studies of new practices, and
Following the money: arts funding and investment under New Labour
The conference will include keynote presentations and a practitioner panel.
