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.
