8th World Summit on Arts and Culture

11 March 2019, Malaysia


Co-hosted by the National Department for Culture and Arts (JKKN) of the Malaysian Ministry of Tourism and Culture and IFACCA, the 8th World Summit is expected to attract arts leaders and key policy makers from up to 80 countries. 

The Summit theme will be MOBILE MINDS: Culture, Knowledge and Change

The times in which we live are marked by constant change and transformation. Rapid 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 next World Summit will focus on the intersection and confluence - from both a traditional and contemporary viewpoint - between knowledge, culture, artistic practice, creative spaces, innovation and digital revolution.
