'The politics of cultural value: Towards an emancipatory framework' - interesting new post by Dr Eleonora Belfiore about whether cultural policy and arts funding can support social justice and emancipation. My feeling is, no. State policy and grant giving is always politically laden with issues of power. Only a utopian paradigm shift in how government works could possibly go some way to achieving this. Nevertheless, this is an excellent project and its work with gypsies and travellers is close to my heart. Great people; not so sure about using an arts management co. called 'Cultural Solutions'?
