VPAC15H3: Cultural Policy

A survey of the principles, structures, and patterns of cultural policy and how these impact arts and media funding structures in Canada, nationally and internationally. Through original research including interviews in the sector, group and individual assignments will explore a wide range of cultural policy issues, processes, and theoretical commitments underpinning the subsidized arts, commercial and public media industries, and hybrid cultural enterprises, critically exploring the role of advocacy and the strengths and weaknesses of particular policy approaches.
