Workshop 2: Governance & Networks


Session led by Dr Tamara West, ICC Research Fellow

In this session Dr Tamara West shares key findings from our flagship research project on the impact of Liverpool 08 on the city’s cultural vision, cultural strategies and stakeholder relationships.

The session will include research findings and presentations from both Tamara and Dr Dave O’Brien (University of Edinburgh), who led research on Liverpool 08 stakeholders in 2007-2009. There will then be short reflections on cultural governance, strategy and network developments in the city from an invited local panel - Deborah Aydon (Former Executive Director, Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse) and Professor David Fleming OBE (Liverpool Hope University; former Director National Museums Liverpool); and ICC researcher Gayle Whelan who will reflect on the Governance theme’s crossover with findings from the Cultural Vibrancy research strand. The discussion will then be opened up to the audience.
