The European Culture Forum, 7-8 December 2017, Milan, Italy
Organised by the European Commission this biennial flagship event is to raise the profile of European cultural cooperation, bring together cultural sectors' key players as well as debate on EU culture policy and initiatives. The Forum’s 2017 edition will also mark the official launch of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.
The event will be held for the first time outside of Brussels. This year it will take place at Superstudio in the booming creative neighbourhood of Tortona in Milan, a unique venue, which once was a bicycle factory and then a place for fashion publishing and art.
Among issues discussed during the Forum there will be questions such as
Can culture help to tackle European and global challenges? Does cultural heritage matter to Europeans? How can culture in cities and regions help to shape more cohesive and inclusive societies?
River//Cities Platform will be represented at the Forum by its representatives from several organisations.
