The Arts & Culture Creative Research Unit (ACRU) is a new research and development partnership between the Arts & Culture Trust (ACT) and the University of Johannesburg’s College of Business and Economics (CBE). It aims to promote arts and culture research by positioning it centrally within economic growth and socio-economic development, exploring multi-disciplinary approaches to building and researching the cultural and creative economy. The 2022 ACRU Symposium will launch ACRU as a platform to bridge the relationship between universities, institutions, and businesses, in which arts and culture are addressed.
