About the Colloquium

 For over 15 years the International Colloquium has brought together researchers in Nonprofit, Arts, Heritage and Social Marketing from all over the world. Much has been achieved during the last 15 years, yet there remains a large amount of exciting fresh territory to be explored.


Colloquium theme


The theme of the 2015 Colloquium is ‘Excellence Rigour and Relevance’ in Nonprofit, Arts, Heritage and Social Marketing. Several issues are worthy of consideration in these respects. How, for example, can excellence be achieved? How is excellence measured? Should excellence be defined in relation to the academic rigour of a piece of research or in terms of its practical relevance? How can rigour and relevance combine to produce excellence in this particular domain?


Plenary speakers

Caro Howell, Director of the Foundling Museum, and Rose Harding, Development Director of Southwark Cathedral will demonstrate the power of thought-provoking collaborations with well-known contemporary artists such as Tracey Emin, Grayson Perry, Yinka Shonibare, David Mach, Angela Wright, and Edmund de Waal to connect with and inspire new audiences. For information on the Foundling Museum and the Southwark Cathedral see: and


How to submit an abstract

Please send your submissions as a word formatted document to Manisha Pal at:
