The Culture and Community Researchers’ Network is a partnership between the Cultural Development Network (CDN) and Victorian College of the Art and Music’s Centre for Cultural Partnerships PhD students. It brings together researchers from Victorian universities who are interested in cultural development, social change, creative methodologies, artistic intervention, and/ or community research themes. It provides opportunities for presentation and discussion of new research in an informal and supportive collegial environment for students and by students. The group has been meeting since 2009, with a pattern of monthly meetings now well established.
Past events are listed below.
