CULTUROPOLIS- International days for cultural rights

Share

Culture Action Europe and Barcelona City Council are jointly organising CULTUROPOLIS programme, with the collaboration of UCLG – United Cities and Local Governments.

The event will take place from 16 to 19 November 2022 in Barcelona, Spain, and aims to reflect and discuss cultural rights.

It will include discussion panels, presentation of good practices, an academic congress and an artistic programme.

Main themes:

  • Cultural work and sustainability: all the necessary tasks for culture must be recognised and valued, as well as the economic, social and environmental sustainability of cultural work must be ensured.
  • Diversities: the diversity of identities included in cultural rights (gender, sexual, ethnic, language, origin, trajectory, etc.) and the difficulties that may occur in regard to freely experiencing this diversity.
  • Participation and communities: the various ways of exercising cultural rights in a collective fashion, analysing the opportunities and challenges involved in experiencing culture as a community.
  • Digital environments: the direct relationship between cultural rights and digital rights. The digitization of culture has opened new possibilities for access and participation, but it is necessary to facilitate its use in order to avoid new inequalities that condition cultural rights.

Two calls were launched, respectively for projects and for academic papers, which will remain open until 15 July 2022.
