CFP: What is the New Global/Local for Cultural Practices?

Global discourse has 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. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • Global cultural policy and local impact

  • Local projects with a global impact

  • The potential of digital technologies to connect local communities to the global

  • Global art markets and local networks

  • The importance of locality in Cultural Practice

  • Intercultural dialogues and practices

  • Globalisation of Cultural Practices

  • Creating Messy Futures* for Cultural Practice

  • Whose Who: The investigators and the investigated

*Messy Futures reject a singular future—one that is clean, White, pristine, or simple and instead privileges localised responses.

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
