Discussion: 'Culture, values, and social and economical development'
Can a festival of alternative music strengthen Ukraine’s economy? We will be looking for an answer to this ambiguous question during the discussion.
We will discuss whether culture affects social and economical development, define the values that catalyse advancement and understand how one builds a prosperous society by holding cultural and educational events. Hop on to share your thoughts and find out what cultural managers from all over Ukraine are thinking.
We will meet on Thursday 15 December via Zoom. Please ensure you are available from 16.00 till 17.30.
The discussion club is part of Cultural Transformation Lab — a series of practical education and networking events aimed at supporting Ukrainian cultural managers, civil society and cultural actors residing outside of large cities and regional centres in times of war.
The Lab is carried out by Goethe-Institut Ukraine in partnership with the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine. The programme is funded by the EU under the House of Europe programme.
