The VII Culture and Citizenship Meeting is organized thematically around the future and future of culture in the context of the post-pandemic crisis and the imagination and formulation of concrete proposals and alternatives for the future.
Some of the countless questions – there are many others – that arise could be: What new challenges and areas of action does the current situation open up for culture? What can-should be the role and contribution of culture and its institutions to health and care? How to join culture and sustainability? What responses are there to the inequalities, biases, gaps, risks imposed by the digital revolution that we are experiencing? How to reimagine urban and rural spaces in which to live together? What policies can serve to decentralize, reterritorialize and cross-sectoral cultural practices? Do we have to think of other ways to organize ourselves?
