Past Events 2013/14

(with participation of ECURES members)

1. The 6thWorld Summit on Arts & Culture
Held under the general theme of "Creative Times: new models for cultural development", the conference   took place on 13-16 January 2014 in Santiago de Chile, organised by IFACCA and CNCA. It focused on "how globalisation, shifts in social and economic development, and new forms of communication are generating an array of challenges and opportunities within the cultural field." More on the event: http://www.ifacca.org

2. The 12th annual Compendium Experts Assembly
The Assembly, held on December 12 and 13, 2013 at the Architekturzentrum in Vienna, has been a success, reuniting more Compendium colleagues and guests than ever before, since the first event took place in Strasbourg, 2002 - see details on the Compendium website.
In this context, an informal Open Meeting with Board Members of ECURES e.V. taking part in the Assembly had been organised, 15 members participated. Main issues of the debates were the financial sustainability of the Compendium; new or ongoing ECURES activities that had previously been proposed by Board Members; and potential new calls for expression of interest (for Contributing Experts of the Compendium).
Later on that day, a reception provided the chance to toast on 15   years of Compendium collaboration as well as on the 20th anniversary of ECURES (and the 10th of the ERICarts Institute).

3. The "Right to Culture" - Comparative Perspectives
This event with the participation of Polish and European experts was held on 6-7 November 2013 in Warsaw (Poland) - see agenda. Initiated by the Polish National Centre for Culture (Warsaw) and WrocÅ‚aw 2016 (European Capital of Culture), conference speakers discussed questions of definition ("Right to culture or cultural rights?"; "Right to access or right to participate?"); the "Right to Culture" in European comparison; the pros and cons of introducing a "Right to Culture" as a basic human right to the European legal system; and the draft of a legal guide on the "Right to Culture". ECURES members Kalliopi Chainoglou, Vesna Čopič, Bożena Gierat-Bieroń, Rui Gomes, Dorota Ilczuk, Ritva Mitchell, Andrew Ormston, Thomas Perrin and Andreas Wiesand took part in the debates.

4. First "Young Scholars' Forum" in Vienna
As proposed at the last ECURES Assembly 2012 in Helsinki, a first Young Scholars' Forum with over 30 participants was held on 13/14   August 2013 in Vienna and in Schloss Reichenau (Semmering). It has been organised in connection with isaScience at the International Summer Academy of the Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts and included the presentation of research topics and papers (mainly PhD theses) as well as panel debates addressing cultural policy challenges - with a focus on South-East Europe (see details here).

In addition to Sanjin Dragojevic and Péter Inkei, ECURES Board members Vesna Čopič, Otto Hofecker and Elka Tschernokoshewa as well as Secretary General Andreas Wiesand participated as reviewers and panelists in the event.
