IFACCA | recruiting Programme Director for 8th World Summit on Arts and Culture
CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS - DEADLINE THURSDAY 6 JULY 2017
The World Summit on Arts and Culture is an international forum that provides national arts councils, ministries of culture and other agencies the opportunity to discuss key issues of public support for the arts, culture and creativity. The event brings together leading policy makers, researchers, managers and practitioners from the arts and culture sector from around the world. The World Summits are hosted by IFACCA, in partnership with a National Member, every two to three years.
The 8th World Summit on Arts and Culture will take place on 11-14 March 2019 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and is co-hosted by the National Department for Culture and Arts (JKKN) at the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, Government of Malaysia and IFACCA. The theme for the 8th World Summit is MOBILE MINDS: Culture, Knowledge and Change.
Previous World Summits have proven their potential for stimulating international cooperation, learning and information exchange for arts support agencies, artists, arts managers and policy makers worldwide. The World Summits provide an excellent opportunity for strengthening civil society, promoting collaboration between non-profit and government sectors and for equipping artists, arts organisations, academics and institutions to interact in a global and dynamic world. To date, seven World Summits have been held: Ottawa, Canada 2000; Singapore, 2003; NewcastleGateshead, England 2006; Johannesburg, South Africa 2009; Melbourne, Australia 2011; Santiago, Chile 2014; and most recently Valletta, Malta in October 2016.
