From 3-4 November 2019, the second ENCATC-TACPS Academy on Cultural Relations and Diplomacy "Anthropocene: Cultural Intermediaries, Cultural Economy and Sustainability" will be held at the National Taiwan Museum, Taipei.
The Academy 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.
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 a day after the 2019 International Symposium on Cultural Trajectories from 1-2 November in Taipei (Programme), 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 Ministry of Culture in Taiwan, Goldsmiths, University of London, and Taiwan Association of Cultural Policy Studies.
ENCATC is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
