Evaluation of ECoCs

Closing Panel: Evaluating European Capitals of Culture


Room: ARoS Aarhus Art Museum in Aarhus (Auditorium)

How and why are European Capitals of Culture evaluated? In many cities the ECoC title is also a chance to develop the knowledge base for cultural policy and build capacity for the evaluation of culture. The closing panel of Re-Value will shed light on three ongoing evaluation projects with the ambition of delivering more than a summative report of the success of the year.

All three are also examples of how the organization of an evaluation of a year of culture can strengthen the relationship between practice and research and build long-term partnerships.

The panel will present the evaluation of Hull UK City of Culture 2017, Aarhus as European Capital of Culture 2017 and European Capital of Culture Valletta 2018. 

Presenters:
Franco Bianchini, Professor University of Hull
Graziella Vella, Research Coordinator Valletta 2018 
Louise Ejgod Hansen, Project and Research Manager
