About the workshop
On October 2-3 2010, Sacha Kagan of the Institute of Cultural Theory, Research and the Arts (IKKK, Leuphana University Lueneburg) organized a workshop together with Prof. Dr. Masayuki Sasaki, director of the Urban Research Plaza, Osaka City University, for the Asia Europe Foundation (ASEF), as part of the official side-event of the 8th ASEM Summit of Heads of State, i.e. the 4th “Connecting Civil Societies Conference” in Brussels.
Workshop participants discussed issues related to “Sustainable Creative Cities: the role of the arts in globalised urban contexts” and elaborated policy recommendations for the 8th ASEM Summit.
The discussions are continuing beyond the two days of the workshop itself, as witnessed by the extended report.
