Cultural Organizations as Platforms for Civic Engagement
MetadataShow full item record
Cultural Organizations as Platforms for Civic Engagement research capstone examines the contemporary theories, rationales and practices in cultural programming at regional cultural organizations that generate civic engagement, public participation and community-based representations. The questions asked in this study are: How do cultural organizations, such as regional cultural museums and public folklore institutions develop cultural programming in order to generate public participation and civic engagement? How can cultural community organizations be placed as public participation platforms? What are some alternative strategies these organizations bring into the public participation strategies? How does cultural heritage and identity become assets for inclusion in the public participation process? While the literature written from the perspective of the participating cultural groups is scarce, there is a very large body of literature accounting for the process development and effectiveness of the different levels of community participation during the initiatives’ design coming from cultural studies and to some extent from the public sector. These accounts give the research a roadmap for the analysis of the current practices and tools available for community members to participate in creating collaborative initiatives for representation and public participation through the cultural organizations.
