Worlding Public Cultures: Art and Social Innovation is a research project and transnational platform designed to strengthen the resilience of public culture in the context of populist nationalisms and global challenges. This project’s ultimate goal is to contribute to the creation of a more open and resilient society with more complex cultural narratives about nation, identity, and migration through changes in public discourse through the arts and curation. It does so by using arts-based methodologies to provide new perspectives on social innovation, by proposing new ways of imagining the cultural consequences of globalization as social innovation, and by applying those research insights for social innovation in the higher education and museums/galleries sectors.
