THE PROGRAM

> The FULL PROGRAM is available in the downloads section.

Bringing together over twenty experts from Québec, Europe and the United States, “Cultural Participation in Flux…” will allow participants to review the traditional model of cultural development, with particular emphasis on the cultural behaviour of immigrant populations and of younger generations. How should we understand the trajectories of cultural participation and the new ways culture is consumed? Are we on the brink of radical change in the way people become involved in the arts? How should we conceive and plan new and fruitful relationships between creators, producers, cultural disseminators and the public?  Researchers and specialists will also address the growing role of digital environments in the cultural dissemination process and in cultural participation.

With its comprehensive approach to this broad issue, “Cultural Participation in Flux…” will appeal to artists and workers in the fields of culture, education, community action, public administration and local development.
