NEW TIMES NEW MODELS - International Conference
NEW TIMES NEW MODELS is a conference that aimed to look at the role independent culture plays in the development of society, both on a global and a local level. The conference focused on inventive, dynamic and sustainable models of governance of independent cultural centres and the relationship between these and public authorities. Over three days, it provided a space for expert insights, for comparisons between Europe, East and West, and for the sharing of best practice in the area of cultural development.
A core issue of New Times New Models is how relations can be improved between public authorities, the private sector and independent cultural centres. The conference therefore explored the obstacles to these relations: how coordinating legislation and other policy challenges might be addressed; presenting and sharing knowledge on good as well as bad practices and investigating innovative approaches.
