The 2020 Culture Get-Together conference aims to create a platform for an open dialogue between professionals in the independent performing arts industry (including organizations of theatre, dance, and new circus) and representatives of cities, regions, and public administration.
The conference does not aspire to resolve particular problems but identify so called baseline, which can then lead to better understanding of the present-day challenges, recognizing matters that are less pressing or more urgent—for both groups of the attending presenters. Accordingly, we strive to establish a communication channel which, once a year, brings both sectors together and contributes to eliminating barriers. So that we help streamline mutual communication and articulate the essential.
The first day of the conference, 16 September, will be dedicated to the situation in Prague; the second day presentations, on 17 September, will explore the individual regions of the Czech Republic. The programme is scheduled from 9:30 to 16:00, with lunch break. Topics will be presented in Czech, the subtitled video recording of the conference will be available in 2 weeks.
The 2020 Culture Get-Together conference will be moderated by Marta Ljubková and Saša Michailidis.
The conference is designed for professionals in the performing arts / organizations, independent professionals in culture, the public /, representatives of the local authorities, staff of the Ministry of Culture Czech Republic, cultural grant management officers, and others, who will at the same time present at the conference.
The theme of the inaugural edition of the Culture Get-Together conference is “Collaboration in Culture.” Its format is inspired by the Industry Get-Together Berlin—an annual conference of performing arts industry held by our German colleagues who will also be present.
