Podcasting the power in partnerships

Rising Arts Agency and Collaborate research partner Andreana Drencheva, Senior Lecturer in Entrepreneurship at King’s College London, are examining the nature of truly equitable partnerships in the cultural sector.

Their research partnership is supported by the Centre of Cultural Value’s Collaborate fund. The fund matches cultural organisations with academics to investigate an under-explored question of cultural value.

As part of their Collaborate project they are producing a series of podcasts, Power in Partnerships, conversations exploring what we mean by power, how it shows up in cultural institutions and the team’s motivations for carrying out this research.

“… we hope to make power visible … and together dream up strategies for creating a truly radical and equitable cultural sector.”

The first episode features a wide-ranging conversation between Andreana and Rising Arts Agency co-directors Euella Jackson and Jess Bunyan and is available to listen to via Spotify.
