I did a talk at Diffusion 'Revolution' Festival Symposium at Cardiff University today. I've uploaded my presentation with notes here. Click the link below to read it and remember to turn notes on in bottom right hand corner of presentation when it loads... The talk is called Artwashing: From Mining Capital to Harvesting Social Capital.
In the talk, I define five types of artwashing:
- Corporate artwashing
- Developer-led artwashing
- Local authority artwashing
- Arts-led artwashing
- Community artwashing
The talk summarises some of the case studies explored in my forthcoming PhD thesis.
Comments always welcome.
