The Center for Cultural Affairs is working in partnership with the Cultural Research Network, 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.
This network emphasizes the practice and process of current research, and the opportunities to inform that active work among peers, academics, and fellow professionals. Their collaborative platform provides opportunities to explore project or professional connections, methodological challenges, technological innovations, standards and practices, and shared infrastructure.
