The Cultural Olympiad as a platform to expand Olympic narratives

Contribution to panel within the #media 2012 conference at the Abandon Normal Devices festival in Manchester

Panel Debate: Journalism, Sport & Culture: Integrated visions?

What do the 2012 Games cultures of sport, cultural expression and media have in common?

Is there scope to develop a common vision that promotes a wider contribution to the civic society?

This panel brought together perspectives in sport, art and journalism to discuss what aspirations could surround the reporting of London 2012. I was joined in the debate by

  • Paul Newman, Head of Communications, MediaCityUK
  • Scott Dougal, Olympics Editor, the Press Association
