European Culture Forum 2013
Welcome to the 2013 edition of the European Culture Forum!
We invite you to come and participate in the debate on 4th, 5th and 6th November in the Bozar Art Centre, Brussels.
The Forum will bring together cultural policy makers, stakeholders, artists and cultural professionals, and will address some of the hottest topics for the sector at the moment.
The programme will include a variety of formats: plenary panels for in-depth discussions, short flash sessions to inform participants of other hot topics, and much more...
There will be three thematic pillars for the plenary sessions:
Measuring the true value of culture and the functioning of the cultural eco-system;
Funding culture in the digital era, looking at new funding models based on developing loyalty and building communities of followers, as well as institution centered models, such as corporate sponsorship, co-production and artistic interventions in business or public services;
Audience development and making cultural participation a reality, looking at holistic, 360° strategies, reaching non-audiences, participatory art, and partnerships and synergies with other sectors.
On the eve of 2014, the Forum could do nothing less than provide a special information session on the Creative Europe programme too!
This edition of the Forum introduces a new format called "Voxpops". This session will give the floor to 7 pre-selected participants to express an idea related to culture and Europe (following-up on the Call for ideaspublished in June 2013).
Moreover, the Forum will host the Award ceremony of the @diversity EU Pilot project, honouring 12 innovative ideas for the cultural and creative sectors in Europe.
