ARS Baltic Creative Dialogue seminar in Riga

ARS Baltic Creative Dialogue seminar will be held on October 2 (12.00 – 19.00) in Riga, Latvia, at the Nordic Council of Ministers' office, Marijas Street 13/3, Berga Bazārs. The seminar is organised by ARS Baltica organisation in collaboration with the Northern Dimension Partnership of Culture (NDPC) and Nordic Council of Ministers (NCM).

The new format ARS BALTICA Creative Dialogue (ABCD) intends to gather creative and cultural practitioners in all Baltic Sea Region countries, provide space for discussion in an open environment and create synergies for and with the participating partners. The format wants to highlight cross-sectorial links and allow policy-makers to follow the debates and share their perspectives on the impact of culture and cultural practice. In the two-year duration of the first project phase the format will travel through the Baltic Sea Region twice to every country. - The underlying understanding is that culture is an essential driver for sustainability. In the first round there will be the focus on Networking and Audience Development. Together with Agata Etmanowicz (Impact Audience Foundation) we will provide a creative and focused session for max. 30-35 partcipants.
