Don't miss out the 2013 European Culture Forum, 4-6 November!

The European Culture Forum is a great opportunity to meet and network, debate key trends and developments in the cultural sector, and help set the agenda for future cultural policy and funding at EU level.


Stimulating speakers will express their views on three topics:

  • Measuring the true value of culture and the functioning of the cultural eco-system;
  • Funding culture in the digital era, looking at new funding models based on developing loyalty and building communities of followers, as well as institution centered models, such as corporate sponsorship, co-production and artistic interventions in business or public services;
  • Audience development and making cultural participation a reality, looking at holistic, 360° strategies, reaching non-audiences, participatory art, and partnerships and synergies with other sectors.
