Call for Papers: 7th World Summit on Arts and Culture

The International Federation of Arts Councils and Cultural Agencies (IFACCA) and the Arts Council Malta (ACM) are pleased to invite arts professionals, academics, producers, administrators, creators and arts workers to submit proposals for presentation at the 7th World Summit on Arts and Culture to be held in Valletta Malta 18-21 October 2016.

Theme: At the crossroads? Cultural Leadership in the 21st Century
The focus of the 2016 World Summit on Arts and Culture, will be on Cultural Leadership in the 21st Century.  The arts and culture can be considered to be at a crossroads – faced with many challenges and opportunities at the global, national and local level such as: the impact of new technologies on the production and distribution of cultural goods and services; threats to global security; new patterns of migration; changing contexts at the national level including austerity measures and continuous requests for reform; aspirations from artists and culture operators to extend their impact and outreach to other sectors, while also struggling to guarantee freedom of expression and ensure cultural diversity.

The Selection process will be made by the Summit Programme Director, Nina Obuljen, in consultation with the Summit hosts, the ACM and IFACCA.

We are seeking your suggestions of keynote speakers, panellists or presenters of case studies who can successfully address the Summit’s theme.

Proposals need to be submitted to us via the online form with a closing date of 5 February 2016.
