Mass Culture acknowledges the great work that is already happening across our sector.

Mass Culture intends to enhance rather than duplicate efforts. By tapping into the existing energy, Mass Culture can play a role by connecting and promoting cultural policy research, updating old data, and addressing research gaps that exist across regions, disciplines, and issue areas.

While an organizational model for Mass Culture will be created and refined throughout the 2017-18 consultations, we have a fun, frenetic initial impression of what a highly connected hub with existing organizations and networks could look like:
