The 2016 European Network of Cultural Centres Conference will be taking place at Bury Art Museum between 17 – 19 February. This event will focus on the themes of resilience, development & change and international working within the cultural sector.
As European cities have to re-invent their mode of development and sustainability, taking into account democratic, social, economic and environmental challenges, they need to connect to local issues as well as to global dynamics.
The ENCC conference will discus the role artistic and creative stakeholders, play in this landscape of development and change. As well as how they offer spaces for experimentation to engage citizens in new forms of participation, of economic, social or environmental resilience, how they contribute to the interconnection of their local territories at a European and international level, and what the benefits and challenges of developing new relationships with local and international cultural centre and stakeholders.
The conference is co-organised by Bury Arts Museum and ENCC. It will provide participants an opportunity to meet people from across the cultural sector around the main topic, including local and international cultural stakeholders, policy makers, activists, academics. The event will also follow previous ENCC meetings by providing a forum for networking, capacity building and engaging in analysis and debate.
