On 6th July, there will be a Policy Debate entitled “Responding to the crisis with culture: towards new models of governance for the cultural sector” held by ENCATC, the European Network of Cultural Administration Training Centers, in Brussels.
The event is being organised in partnership with CIVA, Centre International pour la Ville, l'Architecture et le Paysage. It aims to deal with the subject of the current economic and social crisis and its impacts on the cultural field.
The current crisis is investing many sectors of society, such as the economic, the social, the cultural ones, and it is more and more difficult to find efficient solutions to overcome that challenge. EU institutions, as well as national governments, are still trying to solve the problems leading to a more stable economic society.
In line with the opinion of ENCATC, the cultural sector is suffering by the consequences of the current crisis; at the same time, the sector is experiencing a huge transformation of their business models by the impact of new communication technologies. Many supplies of cultural activities exist also thanks to the support of public funds that are, at this important historical moment, very reduced and addressed to different sectors of society.
The keynote speakers will include, among others:
• Anamaria Wills,
CIDA, the Creative & Innovation Company;
• Cristina Ortega Nuere,
President of ENCATC, University of Deusto, Spain;
• Gerald Lidstone,
Goldsmiths, University of London, United Kingdom;
• Fabio Donato,
University of Ferrara, Italy;
• Donato Giuliani,
Regional Initiative’s Project, Nord-Pas de Calais, France;
• Jaakko Pitkänen,
Mikkeli University of Applied Sciences, Finland;
• Lise Lyck,
Management Copenhagen Business School, Denmark.
Any ENNA members interested in the event are invited to contact the Secretariat. Upon request, one of our staff members will attempt to attend the seminar on your behalf.
