Korea | 10th World Summit on Arts and Culture 2025 call for participants

IFACCA and the Arts Council Korea (ARKO) are calling for proposals to participate in the programme for the 10th World Summit on Arts and Culture, which will explore the theme ‘Charting the future of arts and culture’. The 10th World Summit on Arts and Culture will take place in Seoul, Korea from 27 to 30 May 2025, and bring together key leaders and decision-makers from around the world. 

The 10th World Summit aims to inspire delegates through lived experience examples, intersections and good practices from diverse voices across all corners of the globe; respond to different perspectives presented based on a dialogue of exchange and mutual learning; and reflect on the impact of diverse knowledge systems, technological advances, innovation and digitalisation on the cultural sectors in transforming, empowering, decolonising and building more sustainable communities. 

The programme will draw on diverse contexts and systems to explore tools for futureproofing, based on three transversal clusters:

  • knowledge systems and agency;
  • participatory systems and connectedness; and
  • digital systems and technology.

The Summit programme will use a range of session formats to encourage interaction between delegates and the organisers seek participants for a range of roles: from panellists and provocateurs, to presenters and facilitators. They 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 related sectors.
