Anna Ochmann, the chairwoman of the ARTeria Foundation, participated in the ENCATC network congress. The theme of this year’s event was “Cultural management and policy in a post-digital world – navigating uncertainty”. Its participants tried to find the answers to questions concerning the exploration of the post-digital world – a world, in which digitalisation is a part of each sphere of our lives and influences cultural changes in all fields of our existence to an immense, previously unprecedented degree. They discussed what new, unforeseen challenges the cultural sector faces, how it will impact the management of the industry, and how to stimulate academic research in the areas of cultural politics and cultural management. The ENCATC Congress creates space for meetings, sharing opinions with prominent experts and for the mutual search for answers that can prove to be useful for every “actor” of the cultural sector. The invitation for the congress can be found here, more about the event here.
The congress took place on November 3-11, 2020, and was organised online, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
