ENCATC’s biggest annual gathering will also celebrate its 25th anniversary with academics, researchers, cultural operators, representatives from local, regional, and national governments, artists, and policy makers.
For its 9th edition, the Forum will focus in the MENA region – Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia. It will also experiment for the first time a new format that we believe will give a unique opportunity to the invited researchers to enhance their own skills by being challenged by experimented researchers, academics and practitioners and in the same time gain in visibility in an international context.
The 2016 Forum is an initiative of ENCATC in partnership with the European Cultural Foundation, ECF. The Forum aims at giving young/early career cultural policy researchers the opportunity to meet fellow researchers from Europe and beyond, to present research papers and projects, to discuss topical research issues, methodology, professional cooperation, publishing possibilities, on-line knowledge exchange and collaboration, as well as access to networks of researchers.
This event is co-funded by the European Cultural Foundation. This joint project enables early career researchers from different world regions to come together, engage in dialogue with their fellow peers and with established researchers and professionals – and in doing so, enhance their own skills and career development.
