Last week, the Association of the Compendium of Cultural Policies and Trends hosted its third Assembly for members and expert authors. Due to the current pandemic circumstances, this years meeting was digital and solely focussed on the past, present and future plans for the Compendium. In addition to discussing these plans with the Compendium community, new members for both the Compendium Association’s board and the Assembly of Compendium Experts’ board were elected.
The board of the Compendium Association welcomes new members Adrian Debattista (Head of Strategy and Senior Researcher, Arts Council Malta), Baiba Tjarve (Senior Researcher, Latvian Academy for Culture) and Anna Kanerva (Senior Researcher and Vice-Director, Cupore). The new board members are looking forward to continue improving the Compendium Association together with the new Service Provider (Kulturpolitische Gesellschaft e.V.) from 2021 onwards.
The Compendium wants to thank the leaving board members Marjo Mäenpää (Chair), Jean-Cédric Delvainquière (Vice-Chair), Anna Villarroya and Carmen Croitoru for their commitment and hard work in shaping the Compendium in its crucial transformative years to a multi-stakeholder association.
The new Assembly of Compendium Experts (ACE) will be lead by Andrej Srakar (Chair) in cooperation with Milena Dragićević Šešić (Vice-Chair) and Blerina Berberi (Secretary). All three members of the ACE board hope to strengthen the role of the experts within the Compendium community, while at the same time contributing to shaping the Compendium’s content.
We thank the leaving board members Veronika Ratzenböck and Dorota Ilczuk for their valuable contributions as representatives of the Compendium’s experts. As the former Chair of the ACE, Ratzenböck was also a member of the Compendium Association’s board. This position within the general board will be taken over by Andrej Srakar as the new ACE Chair.
