Making the case: Art and Research, a tool for the common good

Blanka Konopka
On 20 May 2016, Arts Cabinet in partnership with Dutch Culture, organised and presented a workshop in Amsterdam involving leading cultural organisations from the UK and The Netherlands, including Hivos, The Prince Claus Fund, Goldsmiths College London, Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy, Doen Stichting, the Troppen Museum.. to exchange knowledge about good practice in culture and development in the MENA region.
Arts Cabinet commissioned a think-piece for this workshop, which was produced by Blanka Konopka, and sheds lights on art and research as a practice that supports the common good, at a critical social and political time.
