Thanks to the cooperation of Strefa Kultury Wrocław, the Train to Culture team Berlin Wrocław and Convivium Berlin e.V., as well as the financing of the Berlin Senate for Culture and Europe, the third edition of the Culture Forum has been organised. Due to the pandemic situation, this edition will exceptionally take place entirely online. During the meeting in the network we will hear 17 voices of managers, practitioners, creators and cultural promoters representing both cities in eight thematic discussions.

Online exchange of ideas and experiences

During the discussions on Friday, we will take up important topics for all of us, such as culture and climate change and the subject of migration and mobility. There will be no shortage of specialists in the context of artistic exchanges, hybrid formats of residences, study visits and exhibitions. Together we will look at scenarios for the future of stage activities and ask ourselves whether the transmission of “live” events is really “live”?

How to join the online meeting?

The Culture Forum will be fully broadcast on the main Facebook page of the Culture Zone Wrocław, and thanks to simultaneous translations, viewers will be able to choose between conversations in Polish or German. Access to the broadcast is free of charge.
