Subtle engagement

February 18, 2010

Your headline-grabbing article "'Naive' arts partners exploited by the academy" (4 February) fails to provide a reference to the title and location of my report. THE readers who look beyond your precis at the full report - Towards Ecologies of Learning: Enhancing Relations between Arts and Academia - will note that the essay identifies a number of engagement models across arts and academic borders and seeks to convey the complex, interpersonal and multilayered nature of these relations, which knowledge-transfer funding models can sometimes miss.
