On behalf of the Compendium Association and our host, The National Institute for Cultural Research and Training, we are pleased to announce our upcoming event in Bucharest that will consist of:
- the “International Cultural Policy Conference” on the 30th of June, which is open to a wider public.
- the “5th General Assembly of the Association of the Compendium of Cultural Policies and Trends “and the “Assembly of Compendium Experts (ACE)“, which is taking place on the 1st of July and is only accessible for Compendium members and experts.
This year, the programme will focus on the topic of “Culture and Cultural Policies in Times of Crises – Effects, Roles, Transition”.
In times of crises such as the war in the Ukraine and its humanitarian crisis, the impact of Covid-19 and the climate crisis, we believe that it is incumbent on all of us to look more closely at how the cultural sector and cultural policy is dealing with this situation or how they should deal with it.
On one side to analyse how the cultural sector and cultural policies are affected by these crises, on the other side to identify the roles and importance the cultural sector and cultural policies can play and finally to have an outlook on existing or potential cultural policy strategies and programmes that face these challenging crises.
We’re excited to announce that our host, The National Institute for Cultural Research and Training, has arranged a special location for this event: the National Library of Romania (Unirii Blvd. no. 22, Sector 3, 030833, Bucharest).
Travel details, Covid-19 regulations, a participants list, Bios of the speakers and the final agenda will be submitted in the coming weeks. As it is the first real time event since the 2nd General Assembly in Paris (2019), we are very much looking forward to welcoming as many participants as possible and are convinced that it will be a special experience.
