Culture Action Europe Conference 2013: “It’s not a crisis, it is a transition!”

24 September 2013

Culture Action Europe (CAE) announces an innovative two-day international conference (4-5 October 2013, Rome, Italy) entitled “It’s not a crisis, it is a transition!” about the vital role of cultural capacities in building a way out of the deadlock that threatens Europe, its people and democracy. Placed in space and time to maximise its impact on the agenda for the Italian Presidency of the Council of the European Union that will begin in July 2014, the conference conversations, debates and short lectures will involve leading personalities in the European scene of decision-making, cultural organisations, academia and civil society.

In the context of the we are more-act for culture in Europe campaign, CAE actively listened to thousands of voices and exchanged ideas with a wide spectrum of operators during the European tour of talks and debates. The 2013 Culture Action Europe AGM and Conference are conceived to be the starting point of this new participatory model by setting the stage for the discussion and adoption of the milestones of a first five-year shared Action Plan based on CAE’s and its members’ decisions and activities.
