Empowering lasting cultural exchange grounded in shared local perspectives

We’re convinced that we can make significant progress in cultural co-operation in the Baltic Sea Region by gathering local cultural operators in smaller groups and getting their perspective on the big picture of international cultural co-operation in the region. That’s why we’ve created the ARS BALTICA Creative Dialogue, a format that in its starting phase is funded by the PSF Project Support Facility of the Council of Baltic Sea States.

The format will travel twice two all BSR countries offering space for networking and workshop events gathering open-minded cultural actors from all sides of the table to share, network and augment the value of cultural work. In the first set of meetings we will be offering a one day workshop for up to 30 participants including a creative networking part and a workshop on audience development, led by Agata Etmanowicz from Impact Foundation (Warsaw). The second set of meetings will be focusing on community building and sustainability with a special focus on how to help implementing the SDGs via the cultural sector. The second workshop will be led by Oleg Koefoed from Growing Pathways (Copenhagen). All upcoming dates will be published soon!
