The cultural sector is in motion. The classic cultural institutions are being redefined and new types of institutions have appeared. Mediatization, including social media, that blurs the boundaries between producers and consumers, has created new types of artists, new art forms, new arenas and new forms of cultural communication and identity formation. But how does cultural policy follow along? What do these transformations entail for cultural policy and the theoretical foundation of cultural policy? These changes are the theme for the 6th Nordic Conference on Cultural Policy Research that will focus on the consequences of the mediatization and digitalization of culture with its diversity of forms and participation.
The conference is organized in collaboration with the Copenhagen Business School (CBS) and the Centre for Cultural Policy Studies at the Royal School of Library and Information Science (IVA). It will be held in Frederiksberg, Denmark, from August 14 to 16, 2013.
