NEMO at Culture Action Europe's "Beyond the Obvious" conference

NEMO attended the Culture Action Europe annual conference from 15-17 November in Rome. A panel on heritage and social innovation was moderated by NEMO's Secretary General Julia Pagel.

The conference took on the sense of belonging from a cultural perspective. Questions of identity, constrcuted division, inclusion and openness were put into focus and latched onto the current discussions at EU policy level.

The manifold roles of artists, cultural creators and operators, stakeholders and policy makers in this complex structure were explored and discussed during the conference. The goal was to develop the present and future of culture in Europe - very much fitting the most recent communication of the European Commission on <link http: news article nc nemo european-commission-communication-strengthening-european-identity-through-education-and-culture external-link-new-window external link in new>Strengthening the European identiy through education and culture.
