Dear colleagues, 

Cultural Forum Update. The announcement of the National Cultural Policy, Creative Australia,  on 13 March, acknowledged the establishment of the National Local Government Cultural Forum and its role within the three spheres of government. Discussions are progressing leading up to the Cultural Forum meeting on June 19 in Canberra. This meeting is timely given the new policy and for up-to-date Cultural Forum information please visit the CDN website which now has a dedicated page: http://www.culturaldevelopment.net.au/projects/national-local-government-cultural-forum/  

Art Central. Cultural Development Network, Central Goldfields Shire, Global Cities Research Institute, RMIT University and the Australia Council for the Arts, Community Partnerships commenced a three-year Creative Communities Partnership Initiative (CCPI) in the Victorian Central Goldfields Shire this month and will run through to 2015.  Art Central  is a shire-wide arts mentorship program that will bring together professional artists from the region into a residency with the local arts community and connect the education, recreation, small business and health sectors.

Publications from 'Making Culture Count' Conference: book and journal developments
 
Following our successful Making Culture Count conference in May last year, CDN and colleagues from the Centre for Cultural Partnerships, Faculty of the VCA & MCM, University of Melbourne have been working to produce resources from all those interesting presentations.   Our invitation for chapter proposals for a book, 'Making Culture Count: the Politics of Cultural Measurement',  late last year was very positive.  Almost 80 proposals were received from authors in 18 countries, of which 22 were selected as best fit for the book.  The editorial team is now in the process of negotiating a publishing arrangement with a well-established international company.  Because the quality of proposals received was so high and the diversity of topics very interesting, the editorial team decided to create a second resource. This will provide the opportunity for more of the proposals to be published. We are pleased to be collaborating with Dr. Kate McNeil from the University of Melbourne's Arts Management Program, editor of the Asia-Pacific Journal of Arts and Cultural Management, to create a special edition of the journal.  While the book will be strongly focused on theoretical work, the journal will feature articles with a more applied focus.  Many will provide case studies or location-specific discussions on the issues of cultural measurement.  The editors are grateful to all of the authors who submitted their work for consideration. Other resources from Making Culture Count conference are currently available on CDN's website, including the Conference Report and a series of papers from authors who kindly made their work available soon after the conference. http://conference2012.culturaldevelopment.com.au/program/speakers-presentations/

New cultural value blog.
A positive development following the Making Culture Count conference was the establishment by our keynote speaker Associate Professor Eleonora Belfiore from Warwick University, UK, of a blog about cultural value. http://culturalvalueinitiative.org/the-cultural-value-network/.
