» Zur Anmeldung

Cultural development planning has experienced a considerable upswing in recent years in Germany. Originating in the course of the New Cultural Policy in the 1970s, they have become a central instrument of concept-based cultural policy in recent years - especially at the municipal and regional level. Cultural development plans are associated with numerous expectations; they have analytical, reflective, participatory, activating, communicative, structuring, conceptual and commitment functions. Based on stocktaking and analysis, cultural development plans usually define cultural policy goals, set priorities, develop measures to achieve these goals, and quantify the resources needed.

What experiences have the actors from municipal, regional and state cultural administrations and policies as well as from the cultural scene had with their cultural development plans? How were procedures, formats and participation processes designed? Where are the pitfalls? Are there conditions for success? Which expectations were met and which were not? These and other questions will be discussed with selected speakers on five consecutive Tuesdays from 4:30-5:45 p.m. starting September 28, 2021.

During the final session – 26th of October, 16.30-17.45 CEST, held in English, we will include the experiences of stakeholders in different countries of Europe. We cordially invite you to a joint discussion.
