I was very pleased to be invited last week to speak to a group of Japanese scholars from Oita University who were on a visit to Kent to investigate cultural regeneration led by Teresa Smith from the University of Oxford.
I spoke about my research into the social impacts of cultural regeneration and we had a detailed discussion of the recent evolution of British regeneration policy from the Single Regeneration Budget era to the new Local Enterprise Partnerships. You can see my presentation below.*
*I’d love to be able to credit the artists involved in the first picture on my slides. It was emailed to me in 2007 by a participant in some research I was doing at the time and I think it’s a fantastic image. If you have any info on this, please let me know!
