Her er et uddrag fra publikationen om interkulturel kompetenceudvikling (side 38):
By Hanneloes Weeda, Senior Development Officer at the European Cultural Foundation
There are three key elements in creating a climate for artistic and cultural activity to flourish: skilled individuals, professional organizations, and responsive policy frameworks.
Cultural policies and the infrastructure supporting them work best when there is active input from all in the cultural community. But this community must not be isolated. It can and should engage with other sectors: the educational sector for example, and the national, regional and local authorities.
To build intercultural competence in the cultural sector, greater attention should be paid to two areas of development in particular:
Cultural policy capacity development
It is essential that the various stakeholders in the cultural policymaking process become fully aware of the nature of their roles. Partnerships should be forged between them, and the general level of understanding of cultural policy improved – especially the part which cultural policy plays within contemporary societies. This requires funders to invest in support for academic institutions which teach or research cultural policy, as these are the major deliverers of cultural policy education to future generations.
Capacity-building for cultural organisations and institutions
At the same time, funders should continue to support the strategic organisational development of cultural organisations and institutions. Only this way can we have a strong cultural sector with sustainable cultural organisations as major players within it.
