Collective residencies / Beyond the Creative City: managing local arts, culture and place / Olot


From Monday, 5 June 2023 to Monday, 12 June 2023

Lecturer in Sociology
Liverpool, England


Dr Peter Campbell is Associate Head of the Department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology at the University of Liverpool, England. His work is primarily in the fields of social research methods and cultural policy research. His latest monograph is entitled “Persistent Creativity: Making the Case for Art, Culture and the Creative Industries”, and this considers the methods used to substantiate the role of arts and culture, and the political implications of these.
Most recently, he has worked on the AHRC-funded project 'The Art of Reconciliation: Do reconciliation-funded arts projects transform conflict?', contributed to research informing the Irish Theatre Institute's report 'Speak Up: A Call For Change', and co-authored the UK Museum Association's report 'Local Authority Investment in Museums after a Decade of Austerity'.


During my stay I will be building on work published in 2022 which mapped the impact of ‘austerity’ measures on local government funding for culture in England. I aim to develop this work by further considering the relationship between creative and cultural development and inequality, examining the role of urban cultural infrastructure and the nature of cultural education and the wider creative workforce.
