UNCHARTED first policy brief and Report on WP2 case studies


The UNCHARTED project registered two relevant developments at the end of the first year: the phase of study and elaboration carried out by of work package 1, devoted to the analysis of the configuration of the values of culture, was concluded and the one of work package 2, which aims to identify the emergence of values of culture, has produced its first outputs.
The results of work package 1 investigation is documented in six deliverables (D1.1-D1.6) disseminated between the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021.
At the end of last January, work package 6 published the first policy brief, based on the results collected by wp1. The document, in addition to enhance the value of the contribution generated by the wp1 research, it represents the first policy brief of a series of three that the project aims to offer as guide to policy makers who have a stake in formulating or influencing policies about valuing culture in all its forms. The document highlights the tensions and conflicts that involve the plurality of values that co- exist in different cultural contexts and recommends policy makers to take into account the sources of these disagreements when develop European cultural policies at local, national and trans-national levels.
The policy brief also introduces the work carried out by work package 2. This latter is focused on the analysis of specific case studies expected to offer a better identification of the processes that bring to the emergence of values of culture. The analysis regards four fundamental arenas of cultural practice identified in the UNCHARTED project: cultural participation in live arts and culture, cultural participation through media, cultural production and heritage management, and cultural administration. These areas are the background of each specific case study conducted by the UNCHARTED Consortium. D2.1, the first deliverable of wp2, released at the end of January reports, to each of the four thematic areas, the criteria mobilized to select the case studies within each Research Plan.
The full text of D6.3 and D2.1 is available in the dissemination area of the UNCHARTED website.
