In 2016 IFACCA partnered with Arts Council Malta to host the World Summit on Arts and Culture . In preparation for the Summit, IFACCA produced a Discussion Paper to provide participants and speakers with background reading on the Summit’s theme: At the crossroads? Cultural Leadership in the 21st century. The Discussion Paper looked at the concept of cultural leadership from different perspectives, and considered the broader question of how culture can, or does, play a leadership role in driving positive societal change. This D’Art Report 52 is an updated and revised version of the Discussion Paper.
