8th World Summit on Arts & Culture - call for proposals
The International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA) is pleased to invite proposals to participate in the programme for the 8th World Summit on Arts and Culture, which will explore the theme Mobile Minds: Culture, Knowledge and Change.
The 8th World Summit on Arts and Culture takes place in Kuala Lumpur 11-14 March 2019.
The times in which we live are marked by constant change and transformation. Technological progress, environmental impacts, migration patterns and enhanced connectivity all affect our societies, our views of the world, values, cultures, and our understanding of the future. Within this framework, the 8th World Summit on Arts and Culture will focus on the intersection and confluence - from both traditional and contemporary viewpoints - between knowledge, culture, artistic practice, creative spaces, innovation and the digital revolution.
The Summit programme will use a range of session formats to encourage interaction between delegates and we seek participants for a range of roles: from panellists and provocateurs, to presenters and facilitators. We welcome submissions from policy makers, academics, government representatives, cultural and community leaders, practitioners, and professionals working in the fields of arts, culture, creative and cultural industries, as well as other sectors.
Proposals will be reviewed by The International Programme Advisory Committee (IPAC) which comprises leaders from across the international arts and culture sector, along with representatives from the National Department for Culture and Arts (JKKN), Malaysia and the Secretariat of the International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA), as the co-hosts of the Summit. The introduction of a Committee to programme the World Summit reflects IFACCA’s new direction, which prioritises working collaboratively and increasing opportunities for peer exchange within our international network of members and experts.
