The European Network of Cultural Centres invites you to its 2024 annual conference, which will take place in Riga, Latvia, on 4-6 June. Tracing the Trails: for Inclusive Culture in Unequal Times will be an exploration of culture's contribution to more just, accessible and diverse societies.

This year's conference will be dedicated to exploring the transformative roles socio-cultural centres can play in building more inclusive societies. With Tracing the Trails, ENCC aims to foster exchanges between our members and beyond, creating opportunities for cross-sectorial cooperation and strategic partnerships, with a view to pursuing inclusive systemic change.

Expect panel discussions with experts and activists from across Europe and beyond, study visits, workshops, and walks in nature. There will also be space to celebrate, as the event will mark the network's thirtieth anniversary.

Tracing the Trails will be an invitation to problematise, get inspired, and conceive new approaches to access and inclusion, overcoming the silo mentality that often affects policy-making and organisations. It will also be an invitation to celebrate 30 years of ENCC, looking back at where the network started, and gazing forward at where it's collectively headed. As usual, expect study visits, panel discussions, workshops, creativity, and walks in nature.

The event is co-organised with the Association of Latvian Culture Centres, the Culture Association of Northern Riga, and the Latvian National Centre for Culture.
