Lecture by Prof. David Throsby

2019-11-18, 5:00 p.m.
How to value creativity? What is cultural capital really? Can culture be commodified and subordinated to market requirements? How to understand the cultural industries? What is the sustainable management of cultural heritage? Why do we need an understanding of the economic dimension of culture and the cultural context of the economy? We invite you to a lecture by David Throsby, a world-renowned specialist in cultural economics from Macquarie University in Sydney.

Until recently, economists paid little attention to the role of culture in economic development. The economics of culture by David Throsb, although it was created almost two decades ago, has already gained the status of a classical position (it appeared in Poland in 2010).

David Throsby skillfully combines two seemingly separate worlds, showing that it is impossible to imagine economic reflection without taking into account the cultural context and that culture cannot exist independently of the economy. To understand this, you should not only leave the trenches of your own camp, but also learn concepts that allow you to understand the interlocutor.
