"Culture Crops. Cultural Practices in non-urban territories" 23-26 October 2019 in Konstanz/Kreuzlingen

Logo Culture Crops

The 2019 Edition of Culture Action Europe's Beyond the Obvious conference from 23-26 October 2019 in Konstanz/Kreuzlingen focuses on cultural practices in non-urban territories.

"Culture Crops: cultural practices in non-urban territories" sparks the debate on peripheral territories. Where does their territory begin and where it does it end? How do they see themselves and how are they seen by others? What are they and how do they work?

  • Dynamics & Organisation: How does cultural work in peripheral territories take place and how is it organised?
  • Urban-Rural Discrepancies: What is the difference between urban visions of the rural and what the rural is today?
  • Blurred Borderlines: Where does the rural begin and where does it end?

Culture Crops will be the conference on the road. Various thematic itineraries are proposed to the participants in order to experience the diversity of models of practice present in the region. These visits include facilitated debate and exchange between similar practices from other parts of Europe and offers an opportunity for learning and peer-to-peer exchange.

Register before 13 September 18.00 CET to get the Early Bird Fee!

Open Call for Projects!

Do you have a cultural project that deals with non-urban territories? Are you running an initiative based on a dialogue with the rural social and environmental context? Are you intervening with the audiences outside of big cities? Is your project reflecting on cultural and social innovation in peripheries?

Be part of the Culture-Crops-Agora: Culture-Crops-Agora is an informal forum that showcases local and European projects acting within the non-urban territories. The aim of the agora is to bring different perspectives from arts, heritage, agriculture, research, politics, activism etc., mix initiatives from Switzerland and Germany with similar projects coming from all over Europe and to create an open space for networking.
