The times in which we live are marked by profound and ongoing transformation. Globalisation, technology, climate change, and migration reshape societies, create complex challenges and invite new solutions. The 8th World Summit on Arts and Culture will bring together leading policy makers, researchers, managers and practitioners from the arts and culture sector from around the world to address these issues and examine how governments, cultural organisations, creative practitioners, and citizens can and do work together to actively lead change.
The World Summit on Arts and Culture is organised by the International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA) in partnership with one of its National Members every three years. The 8th World Summit will be organised jointly with the National Department for Culture and Arts, Malaysia (JKKN) and will take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 11 to 14 March 2019.
The aim of the Summit is to provide national arts councils, ministries of culture and other agencies the opportunity to discuss key issues of public support for the arts and culture. Previous World Summits have proven their potential for stimulating international cooperation, learning and information exchange for arts support agencies, artists, arts managers and policy makers worldwide. The World Summit provides an excellent opportunity for strengthening civil society, promoting collaboration between non-profit and government sectors and for equipping artists, arts organisations and institutions to interact.
The official language of the Summit is English. Where possible, translations into Spanish and French will be provided.
