Culture. Policy. Discourse (Kultur. Politik. Diskurs) is a yearly in-house publication of the University of Hildesheim, Germany, which focuses on the main research and teaching activities, conferences and cooperation projects of the Department of Cultural Policy. The 18th issue of the magazine, published in 2018 as a bilingual, German and English edition, highlights the Department's main activities, marking its 20th anniversary. On 70 pages, the current issue carries a rich collection of texts grouped around the topics of international cultural policy; foreign cultural policy; arts, rights, justice; European capital of culture; cultural education; cultural policy in rural areas; cultural management; and theatre policy.
The first thematic block opens with a text written by Professor Jonathan Vickery from the Centre for Cultural Policy Studies at the University of Warwick (UK), and Visiting Professor in the winter term 2017/2018 at the University of Hildesheim. Under the title The Process of Redefining Cultural Policy for Development: Strategies from a Dinner Speech, Professor Vickery touches upon the UNESCO vision to redefine cultural policy for development. The author reminds us how the vision of culture as building society and international solidarity through cultural knowledge and collaborative creativity is as relevant today as it was in 1945, when the UNESCO Constitution was established in London. Cultural Policy and Sustainable Development - Report on an Exchange Programme with the UNESCO Chair at the University of Hildesheim is a text written by Professor Kennedy Chinyowa, Director of the Centre for Creative Industries, Faculty of the Arts, Tshwane University of Technology, in Pretoria, South Africa. Professor Chinyowa shares his own experiences with regard to the University of Hildesheim and its Department of Cultural Policy, which has successfully driven the UNESCO Chair in Cultural Policy for the Arts in Development from 2012 to the present. Among other authors of this issue are internationally recognised cultural experts and professionals such as Professor Haruna Dantaco Diakwa from the University of Maiduguri (Nigeria) and Professor Florian Carl from the University of Cape Coast (Ghana).
