ENCATC has released its 2019 calendar of events! Throughout the year, 17 events bringing new opportunities for influencing policy, networking, learning, and research will be organised in 6 countries for ENCATC members, academics, researchers, cultural professionals, artists, policy makers and students coming from Europe and around the globe.
The cornerstone of the 2019 programming will be ENCATC's 27th Annual Congress on Cultural Management and Policy from 2-5 October in Dijon, France. It is the only European Congress bringing forward the latest advancements in cultural management and cultural policy education, training, practice, and research. The programme of this major international gathering includes keynote speeches, exciting debates, panel discussions as well as the Annual Members' Forum, the Annual ENCATC Research Award Ceremony, the Annual ENCATC Education and Research Session, the Young and Emerging Researchers' Forum and cultural excursions. For the first time, ENCATC will also be holding a new activity alongside the Congress: the ENCATC Governance Camp #1 which aims to engage youth representatives to contribute their ideas for improving ENCATC's governance model.
Other core activities include the ENCATC Capacity Building Days and Youth in Action Day (Brussels, 9-11 May), the ENCATC International Study Tour (Rabat, 11-14 June), the ENCATC Academy on Cultural Relations and Diplomacy (Taipei, 4-5 November), and the ENCATC Policy Debate (Brussels, 13 November).
ENCATC's Working Group on Evaluation of International and European Transnational Cultural Projects will continue to build on its progress with new meetings organised in Zagreb (31 May) and Brussels (12 December).
Continuing relations with our sister network the United States, the Association of Arts Administration Educators (AAAE), in 2019 the ENCATC-AAAE International Panel (Madison, Wisconsin, 30 May) will bring together cultural management educators from Europe and North America to tackle issues such as theory and philosophy of the educational programmes, objectives, methodologies, relationships with the sector and society, employability and others.
ENCATC will also be publishing a series of open calls related to these events as well as for the ENCATC Breakfasts which are interactive and informative trainings designed for busy professionals.
Co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, ENCATC's rich and exciting offer of events in 2019 aims to contribute to making the cultural sector stronger and more sustainable through the best of cultural management and policy education, training and research!
