International Conference on Cultural Policy Research / July 05 - 09, 2016 / Sookmyung Women's University, Seoul, South Korea

Focus Sessions & Roundtable

Program > Focus Sessions & Roundtable

The ICCPR 2016, as the first conference in Asia region, anticipates lively dialogue on cultural policy issues within and beyond region. The two special categories of sessions are organized only for this year’s event. It will provide an opportunity to look at some of the most familiar issues of cultural policy from different contexts.

Reflecting on publicness and autonomy of cultural policy in Asia

In this session, speakers will talk about the specific context of cultural policy in Asia. The concept of publicness has been extensively appropriated by the states to justify various types of intervention in policy field. There has been little discussion on how the semiotic meaning of publicness, as defined in Western tradition, holds validity when applied to cultural policy in Asian context. Where the state domination in cultural policy has been an avowed reality this calls for more scrutiny. Does historical tradition matter in defining publicness? Does institutional arrangement affect how publicness is interpreted? In what extent and context does publicness matter in cultural policy? What are the consequences of conceptions and practices? The session is opened for discussion as a platform for diverse perspectives and disciplines to look into the problem.

A valid place for cultural policy in regeneration of a city: role of the citizens, the artists, and the bureaucrats
(in coordination with the Metropolitan Government of Seoul)

Arts and culture has been seen as effective instrument to revitalize and regenerate cities. Different cities have taken different schemes and patterns in culture-led regeneration. Controversies prevail on the achievements and mischiefs pertaining to urban, cultural, and economic grounds. Whereas some highlight economic competitiveness as a result of regeneration, others pinpoint alienation of community and cultural sector upon completion of such project. Place branding and gentrification represent such controversy. In this session, panel speakers will present their perspectives and analysis on how they look at the culture led regeneration from different disciplinary basis and point of view. It will look into Seoul’s ongoing projects and open up discussion for the participants.
