From the Office

 

Dear colleagues, 

This month the Cultural Development Network has been involved in cultural development projects on a local, national and international level.

RECENT ACTIVITIES
The National Local Government Cultural Forum, June 19, 2013 in Canberra

The first meeting of the National Local Government Cultural Forum took place on the 19th June in Canberra to coincide with the Australian Local Government Association’s General Assembly.  It was chaired by the Hon. Fred Chaney AO and attended by representatives from the seven state and territory local government associations and the eight Australian capital cities, plus Australian Local Government Association (ALGA), the Australia Council for the Arts - Community Partnerships, the Office for the Arts, Global Cities Research Institute (RMIT University) and the Cultural Development Network (CDN).

The aim of the first meeting was to explore the national role of local government in arts and culture and to reach consensus on the medium to long-term objectives for the Cultural Forum. These following topics were agreed as items for discussion at the next meeting:
  • Response to the National Arts and Culture Accord
  • Extent of current local government cultural data and use of indicators
  • Infrastructure development and ‘spaces’
  • Relationship between local government and national peak arts organisations
  • Collecting and utilisation of case-studies
Forum participants also attended the ALGA Assembly for a session, when Rupert Myer, AM, Chair of the Australia Council, addressed delegates about local goverment's important role in supporting opportunities for Australians to participate in the arts.

The next meeting of the Cultural Forum is scheduled for 15 October in Perth, Western Australia.  Further information will be posted on CDN's website and from the state local government associations and capital cities.

People and the Planet Conference, RMIT University, July 2-4.
At last week's People and the Planet Conference hosted by the Global Cities Institute at RMIT, themes of sustainability were explored across a range of dimensions.  In the stream of cultural sustainability, co-ordinated by Cultural Development Network, speakers' conceptions about culture and sustainability were both diverse and interesting.  Blanche Higgins from RMIT led a discussion about the "culturing" of tertiary education, which she argued would lead to best practice. She advocated for the recognition of the importance of culture in the way we learn, what we learn and how learning is applied. New CEO of the Footscray Community Arts Centre, Jade Lillie, and her colleague Steph Vajda from Ferment Collaborate in Brisbane discussed the relationship they observed between community cultural development practice and sustainable communities.  Adriana Partal, Research Assistant with CDN, reported on her literature review on cultural impact assessment; and her findings that this process is infrequently used, most often connected to heritage and indigenous heritage management.  Three speakers discussed issues related to cultural heritage and sustainability: Kevin Murray, from RMIT University, on cooperative models for global trade in traditional crafts; Kit Andrews from RMIT University on urban skills in transformation in Myanmar and consultant Samantha Fabry on issues faced by European walled cities.   Queensland researcher Shanene Ditton presented her work with Gold Coast community members who were advocating for their desired future by making an active and co-ordinated contribution to their city's cultural plan.   Further information conference website

UNESCO International Congress on Culture: Key to Sustainable Development, Hangzhou, China, May 15-17, 2013.
UNESCO recently gathered 400 delegates from around the world to discuss culture as a key to sustainable development, at the International Congress in Hangzhou, China.  One of those who attended was Jon Hawkes, author of The Fourth Pillar of Sustainability, which was published by the Cultural Development Network in 2001.  Jon presented a case study; Culture-sensitive and context‐based policies in sustainable development.  One of the main outcomes of the Congress was the adoption of the Hangzhou Declaration 'Placing Culture at the Heart of Sustainable Development Policies' on 17 May 2013. To find out more visit the conference website.
 
COMING UP

Murray Arts and the Cultural Development Network present a one day workshop:
Approaches to planning and evaluation for local cultural development 
Workshop Presenter: Kim Dunphy, Research Program Manager, Cultural Development Network, Victoria.

Friday 2 August 2013, 9 am -4.15pm, Albury Library Museum, Albury.

This one day workshop has been specially designed for cultural development professionals to assist with effective planning and evaluation of their activities. Participants will be introduced to the concept of evidence-based approaches to planning and frameworks that facilitate this, specifically program logic and theory of change.  These will be applied to case studies drawn from participants’ real world experience.  The second half of the day concentrates on evaluation: its purpose, benefits and challenges, and the range of approaches. This mix of theory, relevant models and hands-on experience will equip participants to apply these techniques in their own workplaces.
Workshop fee: $30.   To register please ph 02) 6021 5034 email: info@murrayarts.org.au Information

RESEARCH PROGRAM

In a new initiative this year, CDN is focussing resources on a program of research to assist local government cultural development practitioners in their work.

The first completed article:  Cultural planning processes in local government in Victoriais now available from CDN's website. This paper includes information from a statewide survey of cultural development teams in local government in Victoria. It includes data about local government’s significant investment in cultural development, including staff, infrastructure and activities; and information about cultural planning including guiding principles, processes used for development, contribution of advisory groups and use of indicators. It was presented at the recent Local Government Researchers' Forum in Adelaide in June.  The development of this first paper raised our awareness of many more questions that are as yet unanswered, which we will continue to explore in coming months.  We invite council cultural development staff who are interested in contribute to this research process, particularly to inform us about topics that would be helpful for us to address, to contact Research Manager Kim Dunphy on kim.dunphy@culturaldevelopment.net.au.
