Among these changes in Europe and the world in the past 30 years we can easily quote: digitization, the development of the knowledge society, the rise of NGOs and the shrinking of the nation-state, marketization and commodification, the emergence of new powers, and the collapse of socialism in Europe. While responding to global trends and phenomena, cultural transformations express also locally. Considering therefore “essential to examine our own professional and educational context, strongly influenced by the cultural history and the institutional framework of our countries”, the debate will be enriched by the contributions on the impacts of these transformations across Europe and beyond.
The aim of the ENCATC Congress is to provide an opportunity for academics, trainers and researchers from the cultural management and policy educational fields with cross-disciplinary interests to mingle with professionals, policy makers and artists and thus to bridge the knowledge gap, promote research esteem and the evolution of pedagogy. The ENCATC Congress format includes 6 main activities: the Members’ Forum, the Conference, the Young and Emerging Researchers’ Forum, the Research Award Ceremony, the Education and Research Session, and guided tours.
