On March 25th, 2021, our member ENCC launched a new publication about local networks with its author, Raluca Iacob and two guests. Here is the recording of the online presentation and discussion, and a few related resources.
If you’re a cultural organisation struggling for resources, time and energy, how can you join forces with other similar organisations, instead of competing with them? If you’re a policymaker, how can you create conditions to support this type of cooperation? What about the crazy way many small cultural organisations seem to operate? Is it creative chaos, disfunction, or something else altogether?
This digital publication is not your usual toolkit for organisational development. Starting from practical questions and theoretical insights, it offers reflection tools rather than step-by-step advice. It scrutinizes the way cultural organisations work and opens perspectives for rethinking and change that are anchored in research and existing theory rather than in common wisdom and hopeful thinking.
It also offers a treasure box of case studies of local cultural networks across Europe, from ENCC membership and beyond.
