CAE x MCA Special Edition | Ep.2 – Participation and Communities

Culture Action Europe’s podcast Frequencies and Michael Culture Association’s Eucropolis present a four-part collaboration exploring the current discourse and practice around cultural rights in our communities across Europe. The series focuses on the four focus areas of the 2022 conference Culturopolis, co-organized by the Culture Institute of Barcelona and Culture Action Europe, which brought together researchers, cultural workers, artists and policymakers to exchange ideas and work around cultural rights.

This episode focuses on Participation and Communities. Who is being left out of the experience of culture? What is the cultural sector doing to improve the situation? We asked these and other crucial questions to the people from across the sector who are looking critically at the various conditions that affect the right to participate in the city’s cultural life, as well as the various forms of cultural participation. 

Special guests:

Alexandra Xanthaki, UN Special Rapporteur in the field of cultural rights
Gaia Raisoni from IED Istituto Europeo di Design S.p.A. – Società Benefit
Luca Bergamo, Cultural professional, former Vice-Mayor and deputy Mayor for Cultural Development of Rome
Maud Ntonga (MCA) and Ines Martorell (Dedale) MEMEX project
