“Societal Impacts of Culture: A transitional Perspective”: this is the titled of the 1st international workshop that will be hold online by MESOC, the H2020 sister project of UNCHARTED. The meeting will provide the opportunity to discuss with experts and stakeholders the role of culture in urban change, as well as methodological and operational approaches needed to support social impacts assessment and evaluation.
The agenda is scheduled in several sessions during which MESOC partners will present the first outcomes of the research designed to propose, test and validate an innovative and original approach to measuring the societal value and impacts of cultural policies and practices.
In addition the two-day meeting offers a schedule of round tables and parallel focus groups that will actively involve the invited audience to a lively debate and to exchange knowledge and experiences related to their respective field of research.
In the framework of session 1, the panel debate titled “The social impacts of culture and cultural Policies” will be dedicated to collect inputs and feedback on MESOC concepts by representatives of projects funded on the same call: in this specific context, Professor Arturo Rodríguez Morató, from the University of Barcelona, has been invited to present the UNCHARTED Research and Innovation Action and to join the discussion with the other parallel project INVENT.
Moreover, other members of the UNCHARTED staff will join the following focus groups providing additional contributions to the scientific discussion.
