On 7-10 February EDI participated in the culture covention Folk & Kultur. The days were packed with a seminar and workshop program. During the days you also found us on the exhibition square together with SMart Production House.

On February 7, we encountered the Europa office at Tibor Navracsics, EU Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport. We were looking forward to telling us more about our work for culture and its value in Sweden and in the EU.

On February 9, we organized the  #FUTUREOFCULTUREINEUROPE seminar where we raised the EU perspective in the debate. We discussed how we as cultural organizations can interact and engage for Europe and if the cultural sector is in place in the future EU budget.

Alice Bah Kunke, Culture & Democracy Initiative, convened the Convention together with Isabelle Lövin, Minister of Development.
