Cultural Practice is the magazine of the Institute for Cultural Practices (ICP) at the University of Manchester. The magazine, which was launched in April 2020, publishes critical reflective pieces in arts management, arts practice, cultural policy, heritage studies and museology. It, also, shares news on research, teaching and cultural engagement work by ICP staff, students, alumni and cultural partners.

In Spring and Summer 2020, Cultural Practice will be publishing critical reflections related to issues and challenges that COVID-19 and the lockdown present for arts and culture in the UK and abroad.

The Institute for Cultural Practices provides a platform for postgraduate study, continuing professional development, research and knowledge exchange with cultural and heritage professionals in the UK and abroad. It runs MA and PhD programmes in Art Gallery and Museum Studies, Arts Management and Heritage Studies.
