Arts and Cultural Managers as ‘Public Intellectuals’?

Reflecting on the work of Tariq Modood presented at the fourth seminar for this AHRC network, Victoria Durrer, co-founder of Brokering Intercultural Exchange Network and Lecturer in Arts Management and Cultural Policy at Queen’s University Belfast considers the possibilities, challenges and contradictions of arts and cultural managers as public intellectuals in the spaces of intercultural exchange both between and within nations.

She joins researchers O’Brien, Friedman, Allen, Saha and Malik among others in questioning whether or not changing the demographic really addresses the issues of cultural inequality. Assumptions, absolutes and traditions need greater interrogation.
