The National Conference of Cultural Managers was held on 26th-27th of October, at the Ministry of Culture and National Identity’s Auditorium Hall, under the theme “Training and reform in public culture”.
The National Conference of Cultural Managers is the most important annual debate event organized by the National Institute for Cultural Research and Training (NIRCT), an EU Heritage partner. Since 2014, this Conference is a dialogue platform and an opportunity for public cultural institutions managers, private Romanian cultural entrepreneurs, cultural management experts and representatives of governmental authorities to meet and exchange ideas in terms of good practices.
Within the 6th edition of this Conference, two studies conducted by the National Institute for Cultural Research and Training were launched: the “2018 Cultural Consumption Barometer” and the “UNESCO (CDIS) – Culture for Development Indicators”. The event also comprised the presentation of the preliminary reports of ours and two more European projects – Live Skills and Heritart.
The “Cultural Consumption Barometer” is the most extended national study which measures the practices, preferences and trends of the Romanian cultural consumers. The 2018 edition of this publication focuses on the analysis of cultural trends and practices before and after the celebration of the Great Union Centenary, as well as on highlighting the indissoluble relationship between Culture and Education.
“UNESCO (CDIS) – Culture for Development Indicators”, on its part, is a tool for supporting the political field which was developed between 2009-2014, under the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expression. CDIS combines expert knowledge with a proven methodology, adapted to the context and needs of low-income countries.
