WHAT MIGHT A CULTURAL POLICY HUB(S) LOOK LIKE?
Mass Culture acknowledges the great work that is already happening across our sector. Organizations are conducting research, creating toolkits and reports, and finding creative ways to partner on issues that matter to their communities. 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:
