Ideas on the 3rd floor: Happy Now? Well-being and cultural policy
While much of the debate in policy circles has been on the measurement of well-being - how to do it and what the limitations of measurement are- there has been few attempts to apply a well-being lens to specific policy areas, such as cultural policy. This event will address this issue and discuss the use of well-being as an idea within cultural policy.
Wednesday 17 October 17.30 to 19.00
IPPR North offices, central Newcastle
At this Ideas on the 3rd floor event, Kate Oakley, Professor of Cultural Policy at the University of Leeds, will discuss the use of well-being as an idea within cultural policy. Kate will answer questions such as: what sort of culture might result from an approach based on wellbeing? How would culture fare vis a vis other public spending commitments under a well-being approach? And, if linked to a discussion about work and ownership, could well-being offer a way to think about improving working conditions within the cultural industries?
This event is part of the Ideas on the 3rd Floor programme, which is a series of in-house events on a wide range of topics within politics, culture and society designed to bring the freshest ideas and the most interesting thinkers to Newcastle for intelligent debate of some of today’s most pressing social challenges.
