As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of Québec’s Ministère de la Culture, des Communications et de la Condition féminine, on April 4 and 5 HEC Montréal will hold a conference on Québec cultural policy over the past 50 years.
One of the conference’s aims is to set up a comparative analysis of the development of cultural policy with other regions and countries, particularly English-speaking Canada, the United States, and E.C. countries, as well as look at cultural policy issues in the 21st century. The conference will follow up on two previous conferences: “Public Authorities and Cultural Policy: National Issues” (HEC, 1991) and the “International Symposium on Cultural Policy Trends and Challenges in Western Countries” (Québec, 2008). It is aimed at researchers, students, agency and public authority representatives, cultural artists and professionals, professional associations, culture councils, and other groups.
