Forum d’Avignon, the most important European debate space on culture which usually takes place in that French town, took place in Bilbao for the first time last March.
International experts in art, architecture, politics or entrepeneurship analysed the different aspects of “The City as a Cultural Ecosystem” at AlhóndigaBilbao. This first Forum d’Avignon Bilbao tackled matters such as the public-private relation in culture, the artistic-cultural dialogue within the city scenario, and cities as the motors of cultural change in Europe.
Now you can consult the conclusions reached at this international meeting. We have drawn up a document which includes the two main texts of conclusions, as well as papers by Deusto University Institute on Leisure Studies and the University of the Basque Country Civersity research group, a summary by professor José Enrique Ruiz Domènec, Pernan Goñi’s graphics on the speeches and debates held, as well as links to the documentation created during and for the execution of the RAW (artistic workshops).
