The idea of cultural citizenship is a relative newcomer to the cultural coverage panorama, and provides a very likely compelling replacement motive for presidency intervention within the cultural region. Likewise, the articulation and use of cultural symptoms and of governance thoughts also are new arrivals, rising as most likely strong instruments for coverage and software development.

Accounting for tradition is a different choice of essays from prime Canadian and foreign students that significantly examines cultural citizenship, cultural symptoms, and governance within the context of evolving cultural practices and cultural policy-making. will probably be of significant curiosity to students of cultural policy,...

Example text

This will require great efforts in “translation” and application from the best conceptual and theoretical work in the field—in cultural studies, anthropology, development economics, economic, social and cultural geography, social theory—into policy-relevant and policy-enabling forms. The environmental movement has done this, partly by re-inventing the concept of “environment” (on the basis of a robust and accumulated knowledge and research base), and investing it with a strategic significance that it never had before, and partly by developing a common understanding not of what environment “is” but, rather, of how it connects and relates to how we go about our lives, live in our families, run our businesses, consume products and experiences: how, in short this thing called “the environment” relates to the sustainability of our development objectives and to the quality of our lives.

And under the Cultural Citizenship theme, you are going to link these new tools to “rebuilding the case for culture,” specifically, examining culture’s role in supporting new understandings of citizenship and civic participation. I think that by doing this alone you are breaking important new ground. However, you are doing even more. By inviting the participation of both researchers and policy-makers at this colloquium and by focusing clearly on “knowledge transfer” as a key element, you are building a bridge between those who think about cultural citizenship and those who will have to address the new policy imperatives of diversity and inclusion.

The articulations of paradigm shifts both permit further understanding of governance processes and the roles played by government actors, cultural creators, civil society groups, the private sector, and citizens. Policy paradigms must engage governments, both politicians and policy-makers, and they must also engage the other participants in the governance process. Governments have to be engaged, in order to commit resources (monetary, legal, and political) and other participants have to be engaged, to commit their resources which include the time, energy, and mobilization to put sufficient political pressure on governments to convince them to commit public resources.
