The 2019 ENCATC Academy on Cultural Relations and Diplomacy is an intensive two-day learning experience including visits, lectures and seminars. The programme aims to strengthen links and fostering project partnerships between Asia and Europe in the areas of cultural policy, cultural exchange, and arts management.
From 4-5 November in Taipei, Taiwan, the ENCATC Academy will deliver among others:
- increased knowledge and awareness on the role of cities as important actors in cultural relations and cultural diplomacy and linking this explicitly to cultural policy and arts management;
- networking opportunities among professionals from different areas of government (local, regional, state, federal and international) and civil society from different continents to stimulate cooperation and co-creation of understanding, knowledge and experiences;
- academic material and bibliography on recent publications from North America and Europe
The ENCATC Academy will also foster mutual understanding between academics and professionals from Europe and Asia, facilitating international research and education.
Organised just days before the 2019 International Symposium on Cultural Trajectories (8-9 November in Taipei), the ENCATC Academy is also an excellent opportunity to network with others who will attend the Symposium.
The 9th ENCATC Academy is done in partnership with these ENCATC members: the National Taiwan University of Arts, the Taiwan Ministry of Culture and Taipei Representative Office in UK, and Goldsmiths London of London.
ENCATC is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
