24 August, 2021

The “Formula of Transformation. Context as a resource for development” online discussion will take place on 27 August at 11:00 am Moscow time as part of the Cultural Center-XXI: Culture, Education, Development program.

Every cultural and leisure institution is a part of the urban infrastructure, providing residents with additional opportunities for creative activities, self-development and education, along with all the usual services. The presence or absence of any given option in the institution’s environment provides additional opportunities for building your own program policy in the cultural center. If we add to it the potential of local identity, which can become key to building a unique strategy of development for cultural centers, then we can confidently say that the importance of context and the ability to analyze it and convert it into new programs of activity cannot be overestimated.

How employees of cultural and leisure institutions together with specialists in the field of urban environment research and socio-cultural programming study the context and create new programs and strategic products at the next online discussion within the framework of the Cultural Center-XXI program will be discussed by the invited experts.
