Whose Culture Is It? (Conference)

Posted: Monday, 01 November 2010

The Council of National Cultural Institutions (CNCI) is hosting a seminar on Social Inclusion and Cultural Diversity in Ireland's Cultural Spaces.

Ireland's social make up has changed enormously over the past decade. Our streets, shops and workplaces reflect a more culturally diverse society, bringing rich opportunities for interaction and exchange. Our cultural institutions have a unique role to play in mediating these changes as caretakers of national collections and shapers of the national discourse on identity. Join us in conversation as we investigate the extent to which our cultural institutions and spaces have taken on these challenges in Ireland and the UK, and explore opportunities to shape a more inclusive dialogue that will reinvigorate our understanding of culture.
