Theme : The Art of Placemaking

Theatres, operas, festivals, galleries, heritage organisations, historical Monuments and museums have the power to transform their local areas into lively, beautiful and resilient communities with arts at their core.

Placemaking is a call to action for the arts world to capitalise on local assets, inspiration and potential to create public spaces that promote good health, stimulate local economies and lead to increased creative activity, innovation, diversity and civic engagement.

This requires carefully constructed and managed partnerships between the public, commercial, and not-for-profit sectors. How constitutive members collaborate with each other, across institutions and disciplines; with local communities and their changing demographics; with city stakeholders; with diverse funders; and with other urban agendas is crucial to their success.

At Communicating the Arts Lausanne we will share best practices and develop new understandings through a series of interactive case studies and conversations about the growing contribution that cultural organisations are making to create better cities.

We invite inspiring cultural leaders and experts from within and outside the arts to hear from international trends toward placemaking, learn from their mistake and discuss how cultural organisations can best serve their cities.

CALL FOR PAPER

At Communicating the Arts Lausanne, we will share best practices and develop new understandings through a series of interactive case studies and conversations about the growing contribution that cultural organisations are making to create better cities.

We are looking for inspiring cultural leaders from museums, heritage organisations, visual and performing arts, historical monuments and experts from within and outside the arts to hear from international trends  and case studies toward Placemaking. We want to learn from their mistake and discuss how cultural organisations can best serve their cities.

Key questions include:

  • How can art and cultural organizations take their expertise beyond their walls and into the city and people’s everyday lives?
  • How can they create a stimulating and strong relationship with their visitors beyond the visit?
  • How can art and cultural organizations become a place of dialogue, social experience, cultural diversity and places for debates?
  • How to embed social responsibility, sustainability & socially conscious practice at all levels and across Departments?
  • How can an art institution work with environmental issues?
  • How your organisation can become a thought leader in society?
  • How to create value for your community with a small budget ?

Submit your idea for a Keynote Speech, Case Study or Panel Discussion.
