The Compendium community consists of members of the Compendium Association, the Association’s board and the Compendium’s expert authors. This dedicated group of cultural policy experts and Compendium supporters meet once a year during our annual Assembly. In addition to official meetings for both members and experts, the Compendium’s Assemblies have an elaborate programme on cultural policy in general, featuring panel discussions and keynote speakers. Every Assembly revolves around a specific theme, for example the future of cultural policy in 2019 and arts education in 2018.
In 2020, the annual two-day Assembly was postponed to 2021 due to the current pandemic circumstances. Instead, two official meetings for members and experts took place online at the end of September to discuss the past, present and future plans for the Compendium.
