Cultura, ciudades e identidad en Europa

CoverCulture, cities and identity in Europe
Luxemburg, OPOCE, 2016
ISBN: 978-92-830-3199-4

The study addresses political decision makers, professionals in urban administration and planning and cultural players alike, aiming to provide both a qualitative and quantitative analysis of findings highlighting culture, cities and identity in Europe. It also addresses those involved in the wider process of bringing democratic debate and governance to communities. Following the framework proposed by the EESC, it starts with a thorough overview of the facts and figures surrounding the economic contribution of culture in its broad definition. It is then split into four topic areas, which will be examined separately, all the while highlighting unavoidable overlaps and following connections, providing an overview of studies and European good-practice examples which address: - Culture as an instrument for reconverting cities, - Culture as a tool for integration and inclusiveness, and - Culture as a pillar of European identity within Europe and beyond.

La Joven Orquesta de la UE seguirá tocando. La Comisión Europea ha anunciado en un comunicado hecho público en la tarde de este miércoles que garantizará su continuidad durante al menos los próximos dos años. La entidad, formada por músicos de los veintiocho países de la Unión Europea, ha servido de cantera para numerosos intérpretes durante las últimas cuatro décadas. Bruselas no seleccionó a la agrupación entre los 15 proyectos que percibirían fondos europeos, lo que la abocaba a su final. Ante el fin de las subvenciones comunitarias, sus responsables habían puesto fecha a su desaparición para el próximo 1 de septiembre. (El País, 2.6.2016)

Desde su lanzamiento en 1991, el programa MEDIA de la UE ha invertido más de 2.400 millones de euros en la creatividad y la diversidad cultural europeas, apoyando la realización de miles de películas en Europa y su distribución internacional.

Las películas financiadas por MEDIA vuelven a tener una presencia destacada entre las obras seleccionadas. (RAPID, IP/16/1708, 13.5.2016)

New Narrative for Europe The New Narrative is a project designed to give a voice to the artistic, cultural, scientific and intellectual communities to articulate what Europe stands for today and tomorrow. The purpose of this is to contribute to bringing Europe closer to its citizens and reviving a "European" spirit via the arts and sciences. Central to this is the aim to identify a new, encompassing narrative that takes into account the evolving reality of the European continent, as well as highlighting that the EU is not solely about the economy and growth, but also about cultural unity and common values in a globalised world. Europe's core values of human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, and respect for human rights are an essential part of the European project. The initiative is vital to restoring the waning confidence in Europe. A "New Renaissance" is needed, whereby art, science and culture can shape the European Union's current society and lay the foundations for the future. A sustainable future for Europe requires the participation and engagement of all sectors of society. Citizens from all walks of life are invited to engage in this debate about our common future. Culture has an essential role to play in the shaping of the Union's curent and future societies. It is a key principle of the European project, and must remain firmly entrenched in our ideas if we are to succeed in achieving a truly inclusive, just, and diverse union. Responding to the call of the European Parliament and Commission, a group of prominent cultural figures present a declaration entitled "The Mind and Body of Europe"(615 kB) in March 2014. In October 2014 the contributions to the project were published as a book, "The Mind and Body of Europe: A New Narrative ", to provide an accessibile, attracting, and lasting tool to promote continued debate on the issue. The European Parliament has approved a Preparatory Action for 2015, and the Commission will develop a variety of actions with a focus on young people. The engagement of cultural, scientific, and artistic sectors in the ongoing discussion on the many narratives on Europe is to be continued with specific actions taking place in the Member States.
