Call for Participants: 8th World Summit on Arts and Culture

IFACCA - International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies,
16 April 2018, International


We are pleased to invite proposals to participate in the programme for the 8th World Summit on Arts and Culture, which will explore the theme Mobile Minds: Culture, Knowledge and Change.

The times in which we live are marked by constant change and transformation. Technological progress, environmental impacts, migration patterns and enhanced connectivity all affect our societies, our views of the world, values, cultures, and our understanding of the future. Within this framework, the 8th World Summit on Arts and Culture will focus on the intersection and confluence - from both traditional and contemporary viewpoints - between knowledge, culture, artistic practice, creative spaces, innovation and the digital revolution.

The Summit programme will use a range of session formats to encourage interaction between delegates and we seek participants for a range of roles: from panellists and provocateurs, to presenters and facilitators. We welcome submissions from policy makers, academics, government representatives, cultural and community leaders, practitioners, and professionals working in the fields of arts, culture, creative and cultural industries, as well as other sectors.

Proposals can be made in English, Spanish or French, and the submission deadline is Sunday 20 May 2018.
