Europe Direct Intercult, Intercult, Ars Baltica and Council of the Baltic Sea States invites you to Ars Baltica Creative Dialogue, a half day with networking and a workshop with the theme audience development and cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region. 
The new format ARS BALTICA Creative Dialogue (ABCD) intends to gather creative and cultural practitioners in all Baltic Sea Region countries, provide space for discussion in an open environment and create synergies for and with the participating partners. The format wants to highlight cross-sectorial links and allow policy-makers to follow the debates and share their perspectives on the impact of culture and cultural practice. In the two-year duration of the first project phase the format will travel through the Baltic Sea Region twice to every country. – The underlying understanding is that culture is an essential driver for sustainability.  In the first round there will be the focus on Networking and Audience Development. Together with Agata Etmanowicz (Impact Audience Foundation) we will provide a creative and focused session.
