First issue available now!
With our inaugural issue – ‘Working with and for people: Mapping socially engaged practice in the cultural sector’ – we wanted to explore the main focus of Culture Caleidoscoop: socially engaged practice in the arts, cultural, and heritage sectors. This first theme reveals what this kind of practice looks like in different organisations and to people working in different roles around the globe, touching on some of the challenges that people face working with and for people across the sector as well as the valuable impact of this type of work. The contributions that we have received so far are a great start to this continuing conversation. Some of the themes that have emerged and the questions posed include defining community, social impact, co-creation practices, the role of the professional, and experimentation and evolving practices.
