Abstract

The object of this paper is to reconceptualise cultural intermediaries and cultural
intermediation in a way that may not only allow a coherent understanding of the various functions associated with these actors, but may also enable systematic empirical analyses of their effects on other cultural, social and economic phenomena. This paper employs a value-chain approach to develop a typology of cultural intermediation that may enable a more systematic analysis of cultural intermediaries and cultural intermediation. It presents maps of cultural intermediation in England as well as the three major cities: London, Birmingham and Manchester.
