27 — 29 September 2023
09:00 — 23:00 Austria at Central European University

The first edition of the ACMC took place in 2018 in Hamburg (Germany) and has since been organised every year in partnership with various host universities across Europe. Later editions were organised in Vienna (Austria), Groningen (the Netherlands) and Bilbao (Spain), connecting arts and culture enthusiasts from all over the world, exploring diverse perspectives on cultural matters and celebrating the international dimension of the cultural field.

This year the event is the result of a collaboration between the ACMC and C’MAN, offering an event designed to empower students and professionals in the field of arts and cultural management. Get ready to expand your horizons, network with like-minded individuals, and delve into captivating topics that will shape the future of the industry.

The ACMC will focus on the topic 'Conflict & Context', exploring the role of arts and culture in conflict, while the workshops on cultural management will be held by C’MAN.

The theme of “Conflict and Context” brings to mind societal battles around politics, the economy, culture, and more. It also provokes darker thoughts about war and big societal or worldly crises. Moreover, it alludes to internal conflicts in relation to the outside world, as a reflection on culture, politics, or the economy. Conflict, in its many forms, resonates strongly today, both shaping and being shaped by our many individual and collective contexts.

This ACMC edition will explore where arts and culture fit within this narrative, how they influence and are being influenced by conflict and their respective social, economic, political or cultural contexts.
