Upon Reflection: Responses to the Coventry Cultural Policy & Evaluation Summit
Wednesday 30 June 2021
09:00 AM - 01:00 PM
In response to the Coventry Cultural Policy & Evaluation Summit, you are invited to reflect on the two days with the Cities of Culture Early Career Research Network. We will be joined by artists, academics, and other postgraduates for critical reflection and to explore in a discursive atmosphere the material presented in the summit. Anyone attending the summit is welcome to join, we hope that it will provide a space for reflection and discussion.
