TCCE in Partnership with the British Academy Presents ‘The Changing Face of Value’
Wed 23 October 2013, 6pm-7.30pm followed by a reception
FREE but booking required
The British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH
Building on previous collaborations, including ‘Where are all the Women?’, The Culture Capital Exchange and The British Academy are pleased to present a panel discussion on ‘The Changing Face of Value’.
In this period of arguably unprecedented economic, technological and social change, ‘The Changing Face of Value’ sets out to explore and critique how our sense of value and values may be shifting or indeed completely changing. The discussion will probe and challenge our understandings of what is valued by whom and why in the 21st century.
Bringing together a diverse range of experts from within and outside the Academy, this timely debate will present a compelling range of perspectives on the following themes:
• The digital world: Is it shaping our social and cultural values, and if so, how?
• The apparent rise in value in notions such as ‘authenticity’, ‘openness’ and ‘connectivity’
• The value of objects and new forms of material culture
• The shift of values from the enduring to the ephemeral
• The future of value itself
The event will be chaired by Professor Evelyn Welch, MBE (Vice-Principal, Arts and Sciences, King’s College London). Panellists include: Professor Kay Politowicz (Textiles, Environment Design Research Group, Chelsea College of Art), Jessi Baker (designer and technologist and founder of Project Provenance), Jonathan Schifferes (RSA), Professor Roger Lee (Queen Mary, University of London) and Nigel Tonks (Arup).
