The Art of Partnership was a one-day conference developed by LCACE to stimulate thinking about and awareness of the potential for collaborations between Higher Education and the arts/cultural industries.
The conference provided a platform to discuss how Knowledge Exchange between HE and the arts/cultural industries is working, examined how such partnerships are being recognised within the wider context of the Knowledge Economy, highlighted models of innovative practice between the two sectors and encouraged networking and knowledge sharing between the two sectors.
The event was attended by academics and university Knowledge Transfer professionals, arts/cultural industries professionals, practitioners and policy makers.
