A Lifetime of Failure: Leila Jancovich


The University of Leeds, School of Performance And Cultural industries: Inaugural Lecture Series

Reflections and insights on working in the cultural industries by Leila Jancovich, Professor in Cultural Policy and Participation

In this Lecture, recorded at stage@leeds, Professor Jancovich reflects on how she fell into the cultural sector almost by accident and how the subsequent failure to make the difference she wanted to, in her professional life, has shaped her research ever since. Professor Jancovich discusses her key insights from the past ten years of researching cultural participation, before introducing findings from her new open access book, Failures in Cultural Participation  co-written with Professor David Stevenson and published by Palgrave Macmillan.
