The worlds of the arts and sport are commonly separated in academic study, research, professional practice and cultural policy, even though they both lie within the remit of a single department of Government (Department for Culture, Media and Sport). These three seminars will establish a more formal network of those interested in developing and promoting research, discourse and activities on the relationship between sport and the arts. The seminars will contribute to a special journal edition and a manifesto statement for which we shall invite contributions and arrive at a common declaration of principles and practice. A wide range of individuals and organisations will be invited to become signatories.
The ‘sports in the arts and arts in sport’ is a AHRC funded enterprise of Leeds Beckett University in partnership with Fields of Vision.
