Culture and Community Researchers Network 2009 -2012

The Culture and Community Researchers’ Network was a partnership between CDN and Victorian College of the Art and Music’s Centre for Cultural Partnerships.  It brought together researchers from universities in Australia and other countries who were interested in cultural development, social change, creative methodologies, artistic intervention, and/ or community research themes.  In 2013, a new program is being led by VCA-MCM’s Centre for Cultural Partnerships: Social Practice in the Arts Seminar Series.
