The second online discussion within the PLAN B cycle, dedicated to the cultural policies of European cities in the context of ongoing crisis, has focused on the relation between culture and space (1 October 2020). We have hosted experts and officials from Kaunas (Ana Kočegarova), Rijeka (Irena Kregar Šegota) and Ljubljana (Nevenka Koprivšek) sharing their thoughts on unpredictable future, when cooperation is vital … also in using (public) space for culture.

The event was part of the IETM Multi-location Plenary Meeting 2020 taking place both online and physical activities from 1 to 2 October in more than twenty different locations in the world. The local Plenary meeting in Ljubljana, Slovenia, was hosted by Glej Theatre.
