Not Your Grandmother's Arts Scene

Peter Linett, Chairman & Chief Idea Officer of Slover Linett Strategies, will be presenting "Not Your Grandmother's Arts Scene: Cultural Change, Organizational Adaptation, and Social Research" as part of the Cultural Policy Workshop.

Join The Cultural Policy Center for an informal conversation about how the cultural shifts of the 21st century are reshaping the nonprofit arts system and how social research can help cultural producers navigate this period of rapid change. Peter Linett will share his perspective on those shifts, comparing 20th century, 'modernist' notions of culture to contemporary, 'postmodern' norms. He is keenly interested in hearing students' views on those shifts, given the evidence that younger generations hold different ideals than the graying, 'core' arts audience. For students interested in careers in social research in the arts, Linett will also discuss the difference between academic and consultative research.

Peter Linett is chairman & chief idea officer of Slover Linett Strategies, an audience research firm serving arts, humanities, and science organizations and the foundations that support them. He is an associate editor for theory and practice at Curator: The Museum Journal and founder of Culture Kettle, a nonprofit enterprise sparking inquiry, dialogue, and experimentation in the cultural sector, broadly defined. Linett has been an associate and visiting associate of the Cultural Policy Center.

The presentation is Tuesday, February 19, from Noon to 1:20 PM at the Harris School of Public Policy. It's free and open to the public.
