As part of the Danish Presidency, the Danish Minister for Culture Uffe Elbæk is hosting an Inspiration and Dialogue Meeting in Brussels on June 6, 2012, on the topic of the role of culture in a time of crisis. The intention is to discuss the potential of culture in a time with tight public budgets and high unemployment figures.
Prior to the meeting in Brussels the Danish Minister for Culture launched the project of Team Culture 2012 where he invited a group of European cultural figures to reflect on whether art and culture can play a role in turning the crisis upside down. The Team Members are invited to find concrete examples to illustrate their thoughts on how art and culture can make a positive impact on our European societies. The examples will be presented at the event in Brussels on 6 June and will serve as the outset for an open discussion among the participants on the role of culture in a time of crisis.
