The Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland invited all cultural practitioners from the Baltic Sea Region for the Baltic Sea Cultural Gathering that was held from the 15th to the 18th of September in Gdańsk. The Gathering was organized as a main event of the Polish Presidency in CBSS within the framework of the “Creativity” priority. The event consisted of following parts:
The conference focused on showcasing the evidence of impact of culture on society and economy of the region and its development. During two days filled with discussions and workshops, participants tried to collect hard data as well as methods for enhanced communication between cultural, financial and administrative sectors that sometimes do not fully grasp the importance of culture for regional growth.
The conference was the main event organized within the framework of the “Creativity” priority of the Polish Presidency in the CBSS and is related to the currently ongoing chairmanship of Poland in the Northern Dimension Partnership on Culture as well as to Poland’s coordination of the Policy Area Culture of the European Union Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.
Moreover, on the first day (15.09) all participants of the Gathering were welcomed with a special concert organized in St. John’s Centre with the cooperation of The Baltic Sea Cultural Centre. The concert was also open for the local public and the citizens of Gdańsk. On the very same day, the exhibition of the „Baltic House” project, coordinated by the Baltic Sea Cultural Centre was opened in St. John’s Centre – as one of the potential flagship projects of the Priority Area Culture (EUSBSR).
On the second day of the event (16.09.), the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland invited all the conference attendees to one of the creative spaces of the so-called “Tri-City” for a networking dinner.
