Future is unpredictable and so is planning of cultural events. Doing less, digital, more intimate and closer to the local audiences seems a common trend. Performing arts might be the most jeopardized among the cultural sectors. The pandemic reduced the international dimension of events in an unprecedented way. We are only at the beginning of the learning curve and we do not know yet what the future will bring.
These are some of the points highlighted by the panellists of the second edition of PLAN B series of online discussions on the cultural policies of European cities.
Moderated by Ragnar Siil, this session focused on culture in the public space during and after the crisis, and hosted guest speakers from Kaunas, Rijeka and Ljubljana:
– Ana Kočegarova, Head of Programme, Kaunas 2022,
– Irena Kregar Šegota, Rijeka 2020 Director,
– Nevenka Koprivšek, Artistic Director of Bunker Institute & Mladi levi international festival of performing arts, Ljubljana.
