The value of art and creativity in the design of pathways for transition around the global climate urgencies and the digital transition process, is the motto for the third and last Talk, which takes place on May 5, in the scope of the Cultura Algarve Horizonte 2030 process.
What are the networks and agendas for climate and digital transition in the region and in Europe? What articulation is needed between public entities, private and civil society in digital innovation and environmental sustainability? What is the role of arts and creativity for the climate and digital transition in a society at different speeds? What framework does culture have in the new European funding mechanisms that are very focused on the climate transition and the digital transition? These and other questions will be on the table in the third debate that the Algarve is promoting this week, as part of a series of initiatives to discuss issues related to culture.
It is important to remember that in a partnership between AMAL, Faro2027 - Candidature to European Capital of Culture, 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 has been carried out. The third and last Talk, dedicated to the topic "Culture in the Climate and Digital Transition", will take place next Wednesday, May 5, at 10:30 am, via streaming, and can be followed through Facebook of Faro2027 (Facebook@Faro2027).
MEP Cláudia Monteiro from Aguiar, Sara Machado, responsible for the Creative Europe Culture Programme in Portugal, Tiago Prata from Transversal Projects and specialist in cultural financing, and José Apolinário, President of CCDR Algarve are the guests for this debate, moderated by Dália Paulo, Municipal Director of Administration, Planning and Administrative Modernization of Loulé Municipality.
In addition to these Talks, 3 WorldCafés (online sessions with registration) are also planned, two taking place on May 12th and aimed at specific audiences (one for municipal managers and technicians in the cultural sector and another aimed at cultural agents). The last one, to take place on the 19th of May, will be open to the general public, and you can register HERE.
The aim is that the participants' contributions can be integrated in the document "Culture Algarve Horizon 2030", which should be completed by the end of the summer and will serve to guide the municipalities and regional entities, framing public policies, with a view to obtaining EU funding in the next Multi-annual Financial Framework (2021 - 2027).
