President of Culture Action Europe, Robert Manchin participates in “Re:Creating Europe – Forum on European Culture”, the largest cultural event during the Dutch Presidency taking place in Amsterdam 1-3 June 2016. Mr. Manchin will contribute to the expert session on the social value of culture: why is culture essential for our social wellbeing?
What is the immaterial value of culture? How does culture contribute to social cohesion and social well-being in Europe? To what extent are cultural practices able to connect people, or help them make sense of the world in times of crisis? During this session economists, artists and politicians investigate the value of culture for Europe and will explore how attention can be drawn to the social importance of culture for European society.
