The second of six online events is already scheduled for 28th April, among Talks and WorldCafés, in which a lively debate is sought on different visions for the future of culture, with a view to enhancing the sector and the Algarve region itself.
In a partnership between AMAL, Faro2027, the Regional Directorate of Culture of the Algarve and the University of Algarve, a series of debates on the importance of culture in the development of the territories is being promoted. The second Talk, dedicated to the theme "3 Steps for Cultural Governance", will take place next Wednesday, April 28th, at 10:30am, via streaming, and can be followed through Facebook of Faro2027 (Facebook@Faro2027).
How can cultural strategies revert value in terms of social, economic and environmental impacts? What is the importance of cooperation and concertation for the success of long-term impact strategies? How can evaluation and monitoring strategies contribute to transparency and trust and constant innovation? Which governance models are currently and in the future best suited for regional collaborations in the field of culture? How should governance structures support the progress, creativity and independence of cultural programming? These and other questions will be on the table in this second debate that the Algarve is promoting in the coming weeks, which will focus on a circular path between Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation for the creation of long-term impacts in the cultural area.
Moderated by Alexandra Gonçalves, Director of the School of Management, Hospitality and Tourism (ESGHT) of the University of Algarve, the guest speakers for this initiative are Cristina Farinha, Expert at the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Commission, Ruth Melville, Programme Manager at Impacts 08 Liverpool and Gijs de Vries, Professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
The aim is that the participants' contributions can be integrated in the document "Cultura Algarve Horizonte 2030", which should be finished by the end of the summer and will serve to guide municipalities and regional entities, framing public policies, with a view to obtaining EU funding in the next Multi-annual Financial Framework (2021 - 2027).
