The Flipping Perspectives – Maximizing Exchange conference will be a participatory event gathering the main stakeholders of CCS – from EU and national policy-makers, networks and intermediary organizations, to researchers, experts, Voices of Culture process participants and cultural and creative professionals themselves.
The conference aspires to tackle the following questions:
- How do resilient CCS ecosystems address future societal and economic transformations?
- What are appropriate options to “bounce forward” in view of the post-pandemic experience and beyond?
- What is needed to ensure the rights of artists and cultural workers, fair working conditions and to involve their voice?
Participants will have the chance to discuss in a comfortable setting the issues relating to the working conditions of artists, sustainable and resilient cooperation settings for and with the sector and how to support CCSIs in finding the right opportunities suited to their financing needs and to strengthen their financial literacy.
The conference will be attended by Lisa Lang, EU Affairs & Policy Orchestrator, who will together with Brigitte Winkler-Komar take part in a panel discussion “IMPULS INTRO: inspiring directions of bouncing forward”.
