Culture Action Europe

Latest Newsletter from CAE

Dear members, partners and friends, here is a short update and our wishes for a delightful summer or a good return to work.

Between 15 and 17 October, Culture Action Europe will present Beyond the Obvious 2015, CAE’s annual conference. It will also be the occasion for CAE members' Annual General meeting. Taking place in Gothenburg, Sweden, with the collaboration of Vastra Gotaland Region, BtO 2015 will invite its participants to learn, reflect and debate on what balance shall be sought between the condition for a meaningful public sphere on one side, and private and commercial interests on the other, in order to fulfil cultural – thus: human - rights. Read the concept, discover the new format and reserve your spot. Registrations are now open!

Kathréptis is a two-day international gathering by CAE in collaboration with Agenda 21 for Culture - UCLG and the British Council. It will be held on 21 and 22 September in Athens to discuss culture and cities in a disruptive way and will gather a group of varied people willing to look for new, innovative and potentially disruptive answers to an ambitious, timeliness and universal challenge: What conditions a city should make available to allow a rich and impactful cultural life? And how to create them in the historical moment we are living in? For more information visit Kathreptis' website and to sign up for the event, please send an email to development@cultureactioneurope.org.

After the final conference in Barcelona, MCP Broker | Brokering Migrants’ Cultural Participation published the conclusions of the five partner countries involved in this project.
