Report of the ArtCOP21 Professional Workshop

As we prepare for the first Creative Climate leadership training at the end of March, find the full Report of the ArtCOP21 Professional Workshop, which brought together in Paris on December 3-4, 2015, more than 150 arts and culture representatives from 30 different countries, ranging from governmental bodies (ministries of culture, arts councils, cultural agencies, cities and regions) to foundations, networks, research centers, artists and collectives.

The ArtCOP21 professional workshop aimed to foster an inter-sectoral dialogue through the exchange of best practices, and to highlight the need for specific support and funding mechanisms to consolidate the leadership of the cultural sector in the field of sustainable development and environmental protection.

The ArtCOP21 professional workshop was organized by On the Move, COAL, la Gaîté lyrique, Julie’s Bicycle and IFACCA.

You can find
