Join the conference
Welcome to the Nordic conference on culture and inclusion, 2-3 December 2019. Read more about the program, registration and practical information.
How can we make culture more accessible and relevant for culturally diverse groups? Seven Nordic networks have searched for new ideas and methods, over the past three years.
The networks will present perspectives, best practices, and successful policies to inspire policy-makers, cultural managers and artists all across the Nordic region.
This conference is the result of the project "An Inclusive Cultural Sector in the Nordics" (2017-2019), led by Arts Council Norway.
The Norwegian Minister of Culture and Equality, Trine Skei Grande, will open the conference.
The Nordic Council of Ministers will receive the recommendations from the project.
Day 1: Local learning for global use
2 December, 10.00–17.00
Vega Scene, Hausmanns gate 28, Oslo
What strategies can ensure long-term, sustainable relationships between people in our communities? The cultural networks will take you through their learning processes, as well as the challenges they have met throughout the project. The networks have used their experiences to form a set of criteria for success. These will help policy-makers and cultural managers plan and carry out strategies for increased diversity.
Day 2: New leadership methods
3 December, 09.00–16.00
Det Norske Teatret, Kristian IVs gate 8, Oslo
To ensure equal access to arts and culture we have to talk about leadership and allocation of power. Our cultural policies must address and support innovation and diverse cultural practices, to facilitate full participation. How can we create a cycle of diversity, from local communities to a national and even Nordic level?
More programme details soon to be released.
