UNCHARTED Co-Creation Workshop “Cultural Values in the Cultural Sphere: a European Perspective”

Next 16 and 17 September, the first co-creation workshop of UNCHARTED (Understanding, Capturing and Fostering the Societal Value of Culture) project will be held in Porto, hosted and coordinated by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Porto.

This event will be the first of the three co-creation workshops planned by the Consortium as part of the survey action, which aim to combine the generation of knowledge with the creation of a common understanding and a shared approach to the themes addressed by the research of UNCHARTED.

Through an extended dialogue between the whole UNCHARTED Consortium, some members of the project Advisory Board and other invited stakeholders, it will develop an examination of the factors shaping the value of culture in Europe and will carry out a systematic comparison between perspectives on different areas of cultural practice where these values emerge.

The programme includes sessions devoted to present and discuss the results of WP1. The case studies carried out in WP2 are presented in parallel sessions focused on the three main areas of the project: cultural participation, cultural production and cultural administration. Advisory Board members will act as discussants in these sessions.
Another kind of sessions will confront the synthetic representations of the configuration of values in the different areas of cultural practice that will be elaborated along WP2 with practical reflections by selected stakeholders.
Additionally, in a final session partners and stakeholders will debate about the Covid-19 impact on the values of culture in cultural participation in view of generating policy recommendations for cultural institutions at a time of recovery of normality.
