Announcing the theme and dates of the 2021 ENCATC Digital Congress!
On 11 June 2021, ENCATC has announced the theme of the 2021 ENCATC Digital Congress on Cultural Management and Policy is "Artists in the spotlight! In search of new agendas for education and research in the cultural management and policy field" and it will be held online from 19-22 October 2021.
Artists are at the core cultural and creative sectors (CSS) and the most important partners to other professionals and stakeholders, in and beyond the CCS.
There is no question the COVID-19 crisis has severely impacted the CCS throughout the different waves Europe and the world have experienced to date. The whole crisis has brought (back) to the fore serious challenges for the CCS, some of which are new, but most of which have been only emphasized by the current crisis. Among the latter, the debates about the role and status of the artist are all but new and demand a renewed look in front of the current scenario(s).
The ENCATC Digital Congress is the only global event dedicated to the advancement of theory, education, research and practice on cultural management and policy. Each year, it gathers academics, trainers and researchers from the cultural management and policy educational fields with cross-disciplinary interests, cultural professionals, policy makers, artists, and students.
Organised online due to the pandemic context, the event will start on the 19th of October with the Keynote speech, and the 2nd edition of the ENCATC Fellowship Award. The next days will also include the Global Conversations, an interdisciplinary EU Round Table, the Young and Emerging Researchers' Forum, and the Annual Education and Research Session. It will end on the 22nd of October with the ENCATC Research Award Ceremony.
