In August 2004 the Arts Council of Finland, m-cult and IFACCA co-hosted a 'mini-summit' on media arts and media culture policy in Helsinki, Finland. The mini-summit resulted in the release of the 'Helsinki Agenda', which recommended further actions be taken by IFACCA. The IFACCA response seeks comments and feedback on a process by which IFACCA can further work on new media arts support and gauge interest among members in establishing an ongoing network.
Presentation papers and rapportuer notes are available from the Arts, New Technologies and Innovation workshop at IFACCA's 2nd World Summit on the Arts and Culture, Singapore, 2003.
