The sessions


The Barcelona City Council is convinced that the cultural rights framework is the appropriate way to move towards transforming the local and global cultural ecosystems, enabling a true leap towards cultural democracy. For this reason, it will sponsor the first International Days on Cultural Rights - CULTUROPOLIS, held between 16 and 19 November 2022. The conference was co-organised with Culture Action Europe, the largest European network of cultural actors, and received support from the World Organization of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG).

CULTUROPOLIS was a meeting space for reflecting on and discussing cultural rights, thinking about how they are defined, and imagining and finding mechanisms that promote and guarantee them. It is an event open to local and international cultural agents and all Barcelona citizens.

The conference included discussion panels on cross-cutting themes, an academic congress, project presentations, workshops and artistic programming.
