Bloomington, IN. – The Center for Cultural Affairs is proud to announce that it has recently formed a partnership with the Cultural Research Network. For those unacquainted, the Cultural Research Network is an open resource-sharing community of practice for anyone involved in arts- and culture-related research. The CRN has a worldwide network of practitioners, policy-makers, and scholars and a regular program of Virtual Study Groups on policy areas of interest. Working with the CRN will enhance the network building goals that are at the core of what the CCA is all about.
"Part of the mission of the Center for Cultural Affairs is to facilitate a network of scholars and practitioners advancing cultural affairs, making it a natural partner for the Cultural Research Network. Our network emphasizes the practice and process of current research and the opportunities to inform active work among peers, academics, and fellow professionals. Being informed by the work of the Center for Cultural Affairs will only strengthen the great work being done by CRN members."
Greg Burbidge, CRN Chair and Research & Policy Manager at Calgary Arts Development
Their collaborative platform provides opportunities to explore projects, professional connections, methodological challenges, technological innovations, standards and practices, and shared infrastructure. We look forward to leveraging and building upon the network to move the cultural affairs field forward.
