The Association for Cultural Economics International (ACEI) invites you to attend its 21st international conference on cultural economics to be hosted at University of Lille in France from Tuesday June 30 to Friday July 3, 2020. Preceding the main conference, a Young Researchers workshop will take place on June 30.

The conference theme will be cultural policy with keynote presentations and special sessions bringing together cultural institutions and policy makers to discuss this hot topic. Issues discussed will include the impact of digitization on the cultural sector that has led to new products and ways of accessing and consuming cultural content as well as new business models and approaches to funding (e.g. public-private partnerships) which calls for re-thinking how cultural policy is approached to achieve its objectives. The fast changes characterizing the cultural sector call for new research in cultural economics to understand and provide guidance for cultural policy.

As usual the conference will welcome paper presentations from a broad range of topics relevant to cultural economics. The following subject areas are intended to be illustrative of possible topics that might be considered, but other topic areas relevant to the arts and culture are also welcome:

 art markets

 cultural consumption and participation

 creative cities and urban development

 cultural entrepreneurship and business

 cultural heritage
