The 2019 ENCATC Congress is approaching, and we are proud to announce our Chairman Ignasi Guardans as one of the main speakers. He will be joined by experts coming from Belgium, France, Japan, Serbia, Spain, and the United States, to discuss practices and innovations in the cultural sector with a focus on diversity and sustainability.
The ENCATC Congress on Cultural Management and Policy will take place in Dijon, France on 2-5 October 2019, under the theme “Diversity and sustainability at work. Policies and practices from culture and education”. Participants will have the possibility to learn, debate and reflect on the practical meanings of diversity in the cultural and creative sector, and investigate how its different connotations are contributing to the sustainability discourse in the field. The event will also explore how education and training programmes can be rethought on the basis of practical examples and case studies showing the different connotations of cultural diversity and its impact on sustainability.
My experience as an intern with Cumediae started in early May and ended by the end of July (2019). Since my education is related to the study of languages, the International Society, communication and culture, my tasks were related to all of these topics. I was in charge of the monitoring process (to search for new projects, call for papers and proposals), but also of the creation and writing of the newsletters (for Cumediae and the rest of the projects they are involved with, including the translation of the SouthMed WiA newsletter) and I also manage to upload content and update the Culture Agora website as much as possible, with contents that were relevant and fitting for the categories. I also was in charge of organizing and creating the activities for Interarts’ booth at the EDDs, but also of the general and logistical plan and the materials and other stuff necessary for the event. I also wrote a final report and a guide for future interns about the whole event.
I worked on many things and projects while at Cumediae (probably even some I left out over here…) and, thanks to my colleagues, I always had a good time, learn as much as possible and had someone ready to guide me when I needed to. It was an intense learning experience that definitely adds up to my cv.
