CULTUROPOLIS: international days on cultural rights focus on the following four areas – Cultural work and sustainability, Diversities, Participation and communities & Digital environments

Cultural work and sustainability

The framework of cultural rights includes the right to work in the cultural sector under decent conditions. All the necessary tasks for culture must be recognised and valued. We must approach gender, class, age, origin, and territorial inequalities, among others, that occur in cultural work from an intersectional perspective and ensure the economic, social and environmental sustainability of cultural work.

Diversities

This area tackles the diversity of identities included in cultural rights (gender, sexual, ethnic, language, origin, trajectory, etc.) and the difficulties that may occur in regard to freely experiencing this diversity. There is a need to tackle the insufficient presence and visibility of diversities in cultural expressions and practices, as well as in participation and the decision-making capacity inherent in the design of cultural policies.

Participation and communities

There are various conditions that affect the right to participate in the cultural life of different territories, as well as the various forms of participation. With this topic, CULTUROPOLIS will tackle diverse ways of exercising cultural rights in a collective fashion, analysing the opportunities and challenges involved in experiencing culture as a community.

Digital environments

There is a direct relationship between cultural rights and digital rights. The digitalization of culture, as well as social and economic life as a whole, has opened up new possibilities for access and participation, but also for reproducing and creating new inequalities that condition cultural rights. The circulation of content, the ability to access it and facilitate its use are all part of this area.

 

CULTUROPOLIS  Call for projects! WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR? A total of 36 projects will be selected by the conference’s Advisory Council

The CULTUROPOLIS projects’ forum will showcase local and European/International initiatives working on the topic of cultural rights, and specifically at the intersection of access to and participation in cultural life, cultural work, sustainability, diversities, participation and communities, and digital environments. The aim is to bring different perspectives from arts, heritage, human rights, research, politics, activism and other spheres and mix initiatives from Catalonia and Spain with similar projects coming from all over Europe and beyond and to create an open space for networking and peer learning.

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

Do you have a project that deals with diversity, inclusion, participation and democratization? Are you running a participatory initiative creating a dialogue with diverse communities, sectors and movements? Is your project creating open, inclusive public spaces? Are you working at the intersection of culture and environmental, social and economic sustainability or cultural work? Is your project reflecting on access to technologies and digital rights?

We want to hear from you if your project fits into at least one of the following categories:

Cultural projects addressing cultural work and sustainability (cultural work and status of the artist; working and living conditions in the cultural sector; labor inequalities based on gender, class, age, origin, territory etc. and the precarity of artists and cultural professionals; environmental, social and economic sustainability; governance and participation in the formulation, implementation and evaluation of cultural policies, etc.).

Projects focusing on diversities (diverse and inclusive public spaces; decolonization; LGBTQ+phobia, racism and discrimination in cultural practices; feminist cultures; diverse memories; reactionary movements and the new European far right; media plurality, etc.).

Projects dealing with participation and communities (community action and culture management; access, participation and democratisation of cultural institutions; participation and co-creation; culture, social well-being and community health; living well and well-being; the open design of public spaces; mediation, etc.).

Projects reflecting on digital environments (digital environments and public spaces / democracy; digital heritage; digitisation in cultural and creative sectors; opportunities and inequities in digital cultural participation, etc.).

International and/or European cultural and artistic projects dealing with one or more of the above-mentioned topics (we strongly encourage Culture Action Europe members to send their projects).

Spanish and Catalan cultural and artistic projects dealing with one or more of the above-mentioned topics. Priority will be given to projects addressing more than one of the above-mentioned topics. A total of 36 projects will be selected by the conference’s Advisory Council.
