The value of European cooperation discussed in the framework of the European Culture Forum

The European Commission organises the biennial European Culture Forum that will take place in Brussels on April 19 and 20. The event will consist of two full days of debates, including larger plenary sessions focusing on the main aims of the European Agenda for Culture, as well as smaller, technical sessions on the work of the EU. Plenary sessions will be launched by thought-provoking inspirational speeches, followed by moderated panel debates bringing in experiences, views and questions from the audience.

The Forum is aimed at raising the profile of European cultural cooperation, uniting the sector’s key players, taking stock the European Agenda for Culture’s implementation, and sparking debate on EU culture policy and initiatives. It will also be a major networking opportunity and will highlight culture’s role in breeding talent and creativity. The Forum will reflect on culture’s contribution to the new Commission’s priorities such as innovation, jobs and growth; the digital single market; social cohesion and intercultural dialogue; and Europe’s position on the global scene.

Webstreaming will be available 19-20 April.
