City and Culture: a new workshop is being launched as part of the conference!

The three-day conference creates the opportunity to analyse the evaluation process of the European Capital of Culture in Wrocław, and constitutes the symbolic beginning of a completely new cultural institution. What is more, it offers a number of workshops for practitioners who shape the cultural landscape, providing them with a sort of " toolbox ", which we hope will fulfil the needs and expectations of cultural operators of our city. The experience we have gained over the past few years, shows how dynamically changing and redefining our sector is, how important it is to keep up to date with the latest developments and, above all, how important dialogue and mutual understanding of your needs and capabilities are.​

It seems that September in Wrocław offers a lot of inspiring moments, mainly thanks to the international conference "City and Culture", which we have prepared in cooperation with the University of Wrocław, the Unit of Urban and Rural Sociology and the Unit of Sociology of Culture and Civilization at Institute of Sociology University of Wrocław, and the Municipal Office of Wrocław. 

A new workshop is being launched as part of the international conference “City and Culture” within the evaluation project of the European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016!

When we talk about cultural sustainability in the framework of ECoCs, we should critically reflect on the conditions and possibilities of the local scene. What is included in a long-term cultural strategy and how is the participation of the local cultural field in decision-making ensured? How can evaluation processes secure cultural sustainability? What methods and formats can be used to safeguard inclusion? Within the workshop conducted by Szilvia Nagy from LOCOP, we will address these questions from the point of view of local operators and we will discuss empowerment strategies.  

Thursday, September 21, 2017, 15:00 - 17:30, The yard next to "Neony", Ruska 46a, Wrocław

The workshop is targeted at local operators (NGOs, activist, artists, curators and grass-root organisations active in the cultural and social field), but it is open for all participants interested in the subject of cultural sustainability.

The workshops conducted by Hanka Kostrzewska from the Regional Institute of Culture in Katowice will deal with the ways of acquiring, using and visualizing data by cultural sector workers. The first part of the workshop will constitute a theoretical introduction to the use and visualization of data. The participants will be provided with basic methods and techniques of conducting research and using already existing data. They will also discuss the issue of visualization, which can serve not only as a tool for analysis and research but also as a clear form of presenting information. In the second part of the workshop we will present basic tools for data analysis and for their visual representation.

The participants will be also engaged in practical work with data, their processing, cleaning and presenting. The workshop participants will be able to gain basic knowledge about the data use, processing and presentation for their own purposes - be it daily activities, analysis or simple research. They will also have the opportunity to learn relatively simple tools for data visualization. Hanka will provide them with real examples, interesting solutions and ways of data application and visualization.

Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 15:00 - 17:30, Barbara, Świdnicka 8b, Wrocław
