newsletter TRIANGLE newsletter
newsletter
newsletter So far this century, culture has managed to fit itself into a new conceptual triangle. It is a triangle that it shares with new policies and new strategies, a simultaneously virtuous and vicious triangle, creator of opportunities and responsible for a new governance, but it is also a triangle that generates stumbling blocks and that is largely difficult to manage. The triangle’s vertices are taken up by concepts that are slowly but surely becoming more central globally.

In May 2004, the Agenda 21 for Culture was approved in Barcelona. It was a tool (or perhaps better described as a toolbox) adopted as a navigation chart by the Culture Commission of the UCLG (United Cities and Local Governments) to consider culture not merely as a resource for social, environmental and economic development (the three pillars that are traditionally acknowledged as underpinning development), but rather as the fourth pillar or a fundamental dimension for sustainable development. Since then, hundreds of cities and local governments worldwide have ratified the Agenda 21 for Culture.

In late 2005, a broad majority of the UNESCO General Assembly approved the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of Diversity in Cultural Manifestations. This Convention is now legally binding in the 100+ countries that have adopted it since. In addition to laying down the conditions for ‘cultural exceptions’, declaring the twofold spiritual and material condition of cultural goods and services, which are not merely merchandise, it brings in the notion of diversity as a new regulating principle of relations between State and Society, in parallel to what equality was two centuries earlier.

In autumn 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Sustainable Development Goals Agenda for the 2030 horizon. It includes 17 priorities (none specifically targets culture), but culture is ‘mainstreamed’ as a prerequisite to development.

Development, diversity, sustainability… a new triangle that culture must learn to live with in the years to come.

Eduard Miralles, President of the Board of the Interarts Foundation

newsletter Culture takes centre stage at EDD17 newsletter
newsletter
newsletter interarts The European Development Days (EDD17), a meeting organised by the European Commission to gather key players in international development cooperation and to facilitate information and experience sharing to guide EU policies to combat poverty, took place on 7 and 8 June in Brussels, Belgium. Interarts participated in EDD17, seeking to help to highlight the role of culture as an essential factor in development projects. To do so it had a stand on the theme of 'The value of culture' and activities including three pop-up presentations on each line of action that Interarts is currently running: culture and urban development, based on the example of the LAIC project; culture and health, from the DECIDES Programme; and culture for development in the Southern Mediterranean, from the projects SouthMed CV and SouthMed WiA. Finally, Interarts' contribution to the EDD17 also entailed co-organising the session 'Investing in creativity: the future is now', participating in the session 'We Meet', and screening artistic videos by some of the LAIC creators on the EDD Cinema. newsletter

newsletter SouthMed CV visits Amman: preparing for the final conference and meeting with Jordanian sub-grantees newsletter
newsletter
newsletter interarts Between June 11th and 14th, SouthMed CV coordination team visited Amman, Jordan, where a meeting was held between Consortium leader Interarts and Jordanian Partner NCCA-National Center of Culture and Arts, to plan SouthMed CV's final conference in the region that will take place beginning of December 2017 in Amman. The event will be attended by sub-grantees from both calls that will participate in different panels, and cultural experts from the Mediterranean Region. Lectures addressing the different issues related to culture in the region will be delivered. The Conference will be open to anyone interested. The SouthMed CV team met with the EU delegation in Jordan to present the project and future activities in Amman. This was met with high interest and support from the EU delegation. SouthMed CV team also met with the organisations leading the four Jordanian sub-granted projects of the 2nd Call, and visited their spaces: A) Tajalla and Atabet Fann, implementing the project 'Tashbeek', which aims to train and build the capacities of cultural workers and artists from the different regions in Jordan, and form a sustainable network to bring these people together. B) Crossroads for Media and Art, implements the project 'Arts and crafts playground', consisting of a space to which invite artists to work and produce art from available material that will otherwise be waste, this project also organises courses and workshops for artists and children, and it combines waste management and artistic production. C) Ma3mal 612, implementing the project 'ANHAR', which is a network of human rights film festivals, aiming at establishing exchanges, dialogue and support in between organisations and festivals of the Southern Mediterranean region. D) Spring Sessions, implementing the project 'Madrassa', between Jordan and Morocco, which is a training and residency programme for curators and cultural managers in the region of the southern Mediterranean. The visit to Amman was enriching and successful: a programme for the final conference was drafted, a more in depth knowledge about the cultural scene in Amman and in Jordan as well as a closer look of the sub-granted projects being implemented in Jordan were achieved, and the visit to the EU delegation was a success. More information will be soon published about the December conference on SouthMed CV webpage and social media. SouthMed CV is co-funded by the EU within the framework of the regional programme Med Culture. (Photo: Crossroads for Media and Art). newsletter
