On The Edge’s Jon Price has been invited by the European network ENCATC to give a keynote address to its upcoming 6th Annual Policy Debate in Brussels on Wednesday 22nd June. The event addresses European Cultural Leadership and the Role of the Artist and is targeted at cultural professionals, researchers and policy makers from all over Europe. Jon will be talking about his recent work on the Discourse of Cultural Leadership as well as the wider trajectory of On The Edge research on related topics, from the Artist as Leader onwards.

ENCATC’s vision for the debate is to “foster reflection and stimulate a crucial dialogue on the multiple ways to deal with future leadership in the cultural sector”. The invitation provides an opportunity to connect our continuing research in Scotland and the UK with international debates about the public role of culture and the 21st century challenges facing the European cultural sector. The keynote will be followed by a panel session and public debate chaired by ENCATC’s President, Professor Annick Schramme (University of Antwerp/Antwerp Management School). A full programme for the event is available here.

ENCATC specialises in cultural policy and management and has members in over 40 countries worldwide.  The policy debate is a key feature in its annual programme of  events, projects and publications.  The network is currently a partner in On The Edge’s AHRC project Cultural leadership and the place of the Artist alongside Creative Scotland and the Clore Leadership Programme. The next event in that series takes place in Brussels at the BOZAR centre for fine arts on 12th July. More to follow about that on this site.
