ENCATC 2011 Annual Conference “CultureForecast”: Registration open!

A wind of change is blowing over our societies and reshaping our political, social and cultural paradigms. Increased urbanisation, uneven social redistribution, a digital shift and an array of new audiences available mainly with the use of new technological tools - these are motors of change which provide as many challenges as they do opportunities. Can the education and cultural sector predict these changes so as to position itself at the peak of future developments? Are we capable of monitoring future trajectories of change? How can the city adapt and what role will culture play in shaping the future urban and rural landscapes? Which tools do cultural managers need to retain its current audience and reach out to new ones? And how will technological developments and the emergence of new means of communication help us to build new partnerships? In an attempt to forecast trends and future needs, ENCATC will hold its 19th Annual Conference 2011 in Helsinki, Finland on October 12-14th 2011.

Highlights of the 2011 ENCATC Annual Conference include the 5th Young Cultural Policy Researchers Forum and the 8th Cultural Policy Research Award Ceremony. The CPRA and the YCPR Forum are part of a programme package initiated by the European Cultural Foundation and managed by ENCATC in support of young cultural policy researchers.

Organised by ENCATC in close cooperation with five Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences (HUMAK, Metropolia, Novia, Mikkeli and Seinäjoki), this outstanding conference will be held at Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. Along these other organisations taking part in making this all happen are: Foundation for Cultural Policy Research Cupore, Art and Culture Professionals Trade Union TAKU and To Culture With Love, a network for young professionals and students within the field of arts and culture in Europe.
