Culture – city-forming element

What is the culture’s asset in the construction of identity, specific character and development of cities? What are the determining factors, what is the cultural and human potential and how could it be assessed? Essentialism vs. instrumentalisation: is it necessary to explain the investment into culture by economic and social development (creative economy discourse) or can we build on its inherent qualities?

Speakers: Elisabeth Leitner (AT), Marcin Poprawski (PL), Maroš Krivý (SK)

Host: Fedor Blaščák (SK)
