Exploring Cultural Value presents ground breaking new research on the use of the cultural value lens to explain and investigate those areas of society where art and culture can have an impact or add value, beyond economic measures. The book develops and advances existing concepts around cultural value, and thus provides a deeper understanding of the impacts and value of the arts and cultural sectors.

Contributions bridge academic disciplines and the current discourse of policy-makers, with sections exploring ways of thinking about cultural value, current developments in the field, and challenges for the future. Key themes illustrated throughout include alternative conceptual frameworks of cultural value, national/regional/urban perspectives, evidence from practice, and discussion of how the challenges facing the sectors can be addressed.

Exploring Cultural Value combines academic research, case studies, and practitioner perspectives, making a robust and accessible contribution grounded in real world practice. It is a crucial resource for academics, practitioners and policy makers with an interest in the arts, and provides valuable insights into a facet of human endeavour all of us believe to be vital to society.
