(Un)common Ground: Parallel Histories and Policy Contexts

  • Nicola Sim
Part of the New Directions in Cultural Policy Research book series (NDCPR)


Through six phases, this chapter traces the histories and policy conditions that have shaped the youth and gallery education sectors in the UK. By exploring these narratives side-by-side, this chronology reveals how fields of power have differently or similarly impacted upon the sectors and affected their ability to work in partnership. Both occupations are shown to share common ground in their philanthropic origins, their political positioning and their exposure to the effects of neoliberalism. The chapter also suggests that while gallery education has accumulated considerable agency in recent decades, youth work has been systematically dismantled and politically deprioritised. This key difference is used to evidence the idea that there is a fundamentally unequal distribution of power between the youth and visual art sectors.
