The 9th International Danube Conference on Culture will take place from 21-23 November 2021. Please save the date!
Eight years ago, the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and Art, in cooperation with the European Danube Academy, launched the International Danube Conference on Culture series to intensify the cultural-political dialogue and to establish international networks of representatives of the cultural scene in the Danube region.
The main objective of these annual conferences is to look at the Danube region as a unique but extremely diverse cultural area and to offer a platform for exchange that creates new collaborations among artists, cultural institutions and decision-makers. The conferences became a well-known platform for presenting interesting projects, discussing cultural-political issues and promoting our region’s chances of great cultural diversity and creativity through transnational cooperation. It was first organized in Ulm in 2013, and returns now after Novi Sad, Timişoara, Ruse, Pécs, Linz, Regensburg and the Schallaburg to Ulm. Under the motto „Pathway to new prosperity”, the organizers would like to discuss the possiblities of a restart for the cultural sector in the Danube region focusing on innovation, finances and sustainability.
The agenda will be available by under www.danubeculture.eu.
As part of the conference, a high-ranking panel discussion with famous artists, cultural operators and cultural politicians will be held to discuss ways of promoting culture after the covid crisis (working title: “Prosperity and culture in the Danube region”).
