The Culture Capital Exchange (TCCE) is one of the country’s key Cultural Knowledge Exchange organisations. We have an established and extensive track record of work in supporting collaboration, partnerships, networks and engagements of various kinds between Higher Education and the arts and cultural sectors dating back to since our inception as LCACE in 2005.
TCCE will be running a series of five workshops throughout the 22/23 academic year. These will support collaborative or practice-based students from Techne DTP to build partnerships and working relationships with the arts and cultural sectors. These workshops will enable students to focus on their career development, particularly with reference to working across sectors, and will feature expert speakers from across Higher Education and the arts and culture sectors.
