Global discourse have attempted to demonstrate that we live in a hyper-connected world where the local and global are constantly interrelated. Indeed, the term glocality has been increasingly used to underline the co-presence of the global and local in every social relation. Yet, decolonial scholarship has underlined inadequacies in the relationship between both positions and the lack of equality and reciprocity inherent in and to these exchanges. In this issue of Cultural Practices, we invite you to reflect on these differences and connections.


We are open to contributions in different formats (podcast, video, articles, artworks, photography, memes and poetry) that address the specific or broader topics of the CFP.


Deadline for contributions: 30 April 2022



Global Perspectives

Cultural Practices is the magazine of the Institute for Cultural Practices (ICP) at the University of Manchester. The magazine was launched in April 2020 to publish critical reflections related to issues and challenges that COVID-19 and the lockdown presented for arts and culture in the UK and abroad. However, the magazine has since evolved and widened to encourage ideation and discussion between researchers, academics, industry professionals and students working under the theme of cultural practices.

The Institute for Cultural Practices provides a platform for postgraduate study, continuing professional development, research and knowledge exchange with cultural and heritage professionals in the UK and abroad. It runs MA and PhD programmes in Art Gallery and Museum Studies, Arts Management and Heritage Studies.
