PURPLE to join discussions on peri-urban culture

Dec 23, 2019

PURPLE has recently heard that its application to become part of a group of organisations from across Europe taking part in the EU’s Structured Dialogue on the role of culture in non-urban areas has been successful.

The nature and potential of culture and cultural activities in peri-urban settings is a topic that has been looked at by the Working Group in the past. The Structured Dialogue between the European Commission and the cultural sector poses itself the question “What can the EU do to promote culture in the peri-urban spaces?”.

The written submissions from all successful applicants will be collated and published before the full group meets in Germany to discuss and compare thoughts in February preparatory to a high level meeting with EC officials to take place in Brussels in April 2020.
