Developing a sustainable cultural economy in Papua New Guinea

This is a closed workshop but sounds like some interesting discussions to be had. Wish they could do these workshops in PNG.

The organisers are Dr Jason Potts, Dr Susan Cochrane, Mr Deveni Temu, Ms Carol Cooper.
The one-day workshop will investigate the unrealised potential in the cultural capital created by Papua New Guinea (PNG) artists and how greater and more sustainable benefits may be achieved by a concentration of investments and projects in the arts sector of the economy. The workshop will bring together arts practitioners and policy makers with cultural and development economists to discuss models to promote arts and culture in PNG’s economic development.

The workshop is funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC) Asia–Pacific Futures Research Network and hosted by the National Museum of Australia.
