2021 ENCATC Academy on Cultural Relations


International cultural cooperation: Renew, Reimagine, Reconnect

ENCATC Academy on Cultural Relations: was designed for the first time in 2012 to prepare academics, researchers, practitioners, policy makers, artists and students to deal with challenges in cultural relations and diplomacy.  It is meant to offer an intense learning experience with a mixed methodology including lectures and seminars and enhance with experts from the field. 

The 2021 ENCATC Academy will be held online from 12-14 May 2021. Each day will have a different focus: 

  • 12 May: RENEW - How academic institutions can be multipliers for international cooperation? How we can work together? From joint research projects, to sharing case analysis and helping develop better research projects among different players
  • 13 May: REIMAGINE - Reimagining Global North and Global South cooperation. How can there be a balanced relationship when much funding comes from the North? How to re-balance relations between the global South and North when it comes to money and policy? 
  • 14 May: RECONNECT - Networks enabling people to Re-Connect in pandemic times. How in this new context of not travelling during COVID-19 times, how do we build trust in order to build new networks and open doors? Who are the new players? 

As part of the Academy, a case study from Latin America and the Caribbean area will be also showcased. 

Stay tuned as details about the programme details and speakers are to come! 

Academy participants are strongly encouraged to participate on 6 May for the 2021 ENCATC Policy Debate "How to give an EULAC dimension to EU policies in the cultural, scientific and social domains?" which will have lively discussions linked to the Academy.  

The Academy is an initiative of ENCATC done in partnership with New York University, Goldsmiths University of London, the University of Barcelona, the Association of Arts Administration Educators, and with the support of the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
