CIRIN research fellows Maya Nedyalkova and Hanna Klien-Thomas contributed to the opening panel of the Effecting Change symposium at Solent University on 20 January 2023. Their presentation ‘Cultural partnerships and collaboration in the Creative Industries – Reflections on CIRIN at Oxford Brookes’ focused on key activities, achievements and audiences reached since the birth of the network. Three examples of case-study collaborations with academics, cultural practitioners, institutions and industry partners illustrate how local, regional, national and international research, knowledge exchange and critical interventions are bolstered. The symposium ‘Effecting Change: mapping the value of the creative and cultural industries’ is a half-day event hosted by Solent University in association with Creative Network South.
