On 16/03/2020, 160+ participants attended our Beyond the Urban webinar, jointly organised with Culture Action Europe, IETM and Trans Europe Halles.
This webinar (our first ever) was put together to replace a public advocacy meeting, originally scheduled for the same day and cancelled due to the start of restrictions linked to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We were happy to be able to bring together far-flung perspectives and experiences, and happy to see so much interest in the topic despite difficult circumstances. We'd also like to underline that the process is not over, and that we are looking forward to meeting participants in person in the future. For the present we've taken note of your comments and contributions and will take them forward in our future advocacy actions.
For those who were not able to attend, a video recording is available above.
The keynote by Fernando Garcia Dory was shortened to adapt to the webinar format. If you'd like to watch the full version, it's available here.
We would like to also share a few resources, calls and publications organisers and participants discussed during the webinar.
We also have a newly created Reading Room where you'll find publications and reports on non-urban culture from artists, academics and practitioners. Don't hesitate to contribute by sending your resource to firstname.lastname@example.org.
