Plan B 932x524px Eng

Culture and Space during and after the crisis

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. Ragnar Siil has moderated the online discussion.

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; see full REPORT here.

The purpose of this series of online discussions titled A Plan B for the Cultural Policies of European Cities is for representatives of various European cities to exchange their experiences in providing support to artists, cultural creators and organizations during the crisis brought about by the coronavirus pandemic. Examples of good practices can serve as a model and a stimulus for European cities at a time when cultural entities must find new ways to operate.

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.
The series of online discussions is organized by the City of Ljubljana and the Motovila Institute (CED Slovenia) in cooperation with members of the European network of Creative Europe Desks. Ljubljana is a candidate city for European Capital of Culture 2025.
