The  first UNWTO/UNESCO World Conference on Tourism and Culture will bring together, for the first time, Ministers of Tourism and Ministers of Culture from around the world, experts and stakeholders from both sectors to explore new models of partnership between tourism and culture (Siem Reap, Cambodia, 4-6 February 2015).

Gathering tourism and culture stakeholders from all world regions in Siem Reap, Cambodia, the Conference will address a wide range of topics, including governance models, the promotion, protection and safeguarding of culture, innovation, the role of creative industries and urban regeneration as a vehicle for sustainable development in destinations worldwide.

Take a look at the programme and speakers

Conference registration is open

Culture, reflected in traditions, languages, monuments, music, handicrafts and art around the world, is of immeasurable inherent value to its community of origin. At the same time, culture is a key tourism asset, inspiring millions of tourists to visit new destinations each year.Sustainably managed, tourism can be a considerable force for the promotion and safeguarding of the tangible and intangible heritage it relies on, while encouraging the development of arts, crafts and other creative activities.

For many years, UNWTO and UNESCO have been working together to raise awareness about the strong interlinks between tourism and culture, while emphasizing the need for mutually beneficial partnership models. Success will require engaging culture and tourism stakeholders at all levels to address cross cutting responsibilities in areas such as governance, community engagement, innovation and technology and corporate social responsibility.

At a time of an unprecedented tourism growth, with more than one billion tourists crossing international borders each year, the first UNWTO/UNESCO World Conference on Tourism and Culture will provide a much needed global platform for policy-makers, experts and practitioners in both fields to meet and identify the key challenges and opportunities for sustainable development of cultural tourism.

The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne presents ‘China Up Close’, a wide-ranging programme of exhibitions, film screenings, talks, performances, creative workshops, digital storytelling and other events, running December 2014 – March 2015.

China has the world’s fastest growing economy which has triggered a dramatic transformation within Chinese society. China Up Close explores how this profound change has influenced Chinese moving image art and cinema through a deeply rich program of exhibitions, talks, live events and film.

Here’s a selection of some of the China Up Close programme highlights:

img-ex-yang-fudong-filmscapes-hero-02

Yang Fudong: Filmscapes (4 December – 15 March)

The first-ever survey exhibition in Australia of China’s pre-eminent moving image artist, Yang Fudong, comprises three seminal video installations as well as The Coloured Sky: New Women II  (2014), a brand-new five-channel work that has been proudly commissioned by ACMI and the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki.

Growing Up Chinese in Australia (24 February)

Join a panel of prominent Chinese Australians including filmmaker Tony Ayres, writer Benjamin Law, author Alice Pung, cultural critic Juliana Qian and artist William Yang, as they discuss issues surrounding growing up as Australian-Chinese, understanding their racial culture, and the development of a hybrid identity through acculturation.

img-chinese-rice-field-heroChinese Rice Field (14 -23 January)

This participatory installation will take over the Lightwell Bay Window with visitors invited to contribute to the making of an evolving, immersive Chinese landscape. Help create a visual and auditory landscape using sounds from using ancient Chinese instruments,  bamboo chimes, chopsticks, woks, rice beads, Chinese dried food and yarn.

Made in China (15 March)

A discussion about the complex and nuanced contemporary transformation brought on by rapid urbanisation, that is forcing China to take different approaches to environmental issues, the pace of development, and global connections.

Digital Storytelling Project (23-26 March)

In this exciting four-day film project, young Chinese people aged 13 to 17 years who have migrated to Melbourne are invited to create short films telling their own personal stories.

And … if you don’t happen to be in Melbourne, you can explore the dedicated ACMI digital hub Between the Screens, for a behind the scenes look at China up Close, an exploration of Chinese moving image art, film and culture AND you can follow the discussions at the China Up Close Symposium, the ACMI event on 2 December that began the conversation about cultural and artistic relations between China and Australia to kick off the China Up Close season.

A unique institution at the heart of Melbourne’s iconic meeting place, Federation Square, the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) celebrates, explores and promotes the moving image in all its forms – film, television and digital culture.

The first dedicated forum for Creative Hub Managers from across the EU and beyond. European Creative Hubs Forum Lisbon (ECHF Lisbon ’15) takes place 13-15 January and is a one-stop-shop for those dedicated to supporting creative businesses.

Join ECHF Lisbon for two and a half days with your fellow hub managers: networking; peer-learning; exploring best practice and case studies; discovering new markets, new models and new opportunities; and learning about public funding and private investment.

Lisbon is already a busy centre for the development of creative industries, innovation and urban entrepreneurship.

ECHF ‘15 focuses on practical information and case studies for managers of creative Hubs, Clusters and Business Incubators. The sessions vary from interactive plenaries to hands-on workshops on a wide variety of topics such as Cross-Innovation, Living Labs, capacity-building and peer-learning: all aimed at empowering the Hub Manager to be better prepared for the challenges they face every day.

Targeted Hub Manager Speed Meetings, new project development, Finance information session on both EU programmes as well as Private sources like Venture Capital and Angel Investors and the Forum’s very own Manifesto for Creative Hubs in Europe will make for an unforgettable and extremely rich experience for Hub Managers.

CreativeHubs.org is organised by British Council and ADDICT Creative Industries, Portugal.

A creative hub is a physical or virtual ‘place’ where people meet, connect and collaborate. That might be: a collective or co-operative; a creative, tech or cultural space; a network that gathers people or a space that houses a cross disciplinary community of creatives. Where we refer to them as hubs, others might refer to them as clusters, labs, co-working spaces or incubators.

Creative Hubs are a key element for the European economy, fostering economic growth, qualified employment and assisting in the internationalisation of the creative and cultural economy. Whether supported through the subsidised sector or through private investment, whether developed in partnership with large institutions such as Universities or maintained through loose collectives, Europe’s Creative Hubs offer creative businesses the opportunity to grow, thrive and reach larger markets and wider audiences, standing as a key part of the creative ecosytem.

Mapping Survey
Are you a Creative Hub Manager?

If yes, participate in our mapping survey, organised in partnership with the European Creative Business Network

ARTIST ORGANISATIONS INTERNATIONAL brings together more than twenty artist organisations from all over the world from January 9-11 in HAU Theater in Berlin. The three-day congress involves organisations founded by artists, confronting the current crises in politics, economy, education, immigration, and ecology.

The event will be live streamed – see website for details.

With: Artists Association of Azawad, Chto Delat – School of Engaged Art (Dmitry Vilensky), Büro für Anti-Propaganda (Marina Naprushkina), Concerned Artists of the Philippines, Forensic Architecture (Lorenzo Pezzani), Grupo Etcetera (Federico Zukerfeld & Loreto Garín), Gulf Labor, Haben und Brauchen, HudRada, Immigrant Movement International (Tania Bruguera), Institute for Human Activities (Renzo Martens), International Institute of Political Murder Milo Rau), Jewish Renaissance Movement in Poland/ Ruch Odrodzenia Żydowskiego w Polsce ( Yael Bartana & Susanne Sachsse), Performing Arts Forum – PAF (Jan Ritsema), Schoon Genoeg! ( Matthijs de Bruijne), The Laboratory for Insurrectionary Imagination – labofii (John Jordan), The Silent University Ahmet Öğüt), WochenKlausur (Manfred Rainer), Zentrum für Politische Schönheit et al.
Chairs: Ekaterina Degot, Charles Esche, Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei, Matteo Lucchetti, Marion von Osten, Margarita Tsomou

“Artist Organisations International (AOI)” explores a current shift from temporary, precarious art projects to long-term structures of engagement built by artists. The economic crisis, the global erosion of civil rights through the so-called “War on Terror” and the massive rise of social movements have demanded new models of structural participation from politically engaged artists. The shift from the working model of the project to that of the organisation no longer reduces artistic engagement to the singular figure of the author but expands its scope and influence – for example by creating new forms of educational and community structures, non-parliamentary groups, liberation movements, unions or even political parties.

The three-day congress “Artist Organisations International” brings together over twenty organisations, founded by artists, confronting the current crises in politics, economy, education, immigration, and ecology. Lectures and discussions will provide concrete insight into their methods, profiles and goals. While some artists primarily use the concept of an organisation or institution as an artistic form (or perhaps as a metaphor) that serves their artistic vision most properly, for others organisational structures are the necessary means to realise specific political objectives. The invited artist organisations operate as actual organisations – and at the same time they are often works of art themselves or use the possibilities of an artwork by stressing categories such as visual literacy of representation and transformation. They all connect – with different emphasis – symbolic practice and structural effect. “Artist Organisations International” introduces an array of those strategies as modes of resistance, emancipation and (self-)governance. By seeking new alliances “Artist Organisations International” aims to contribute to the strengthening of ties and collaboration between different artist organisations worldwide.
