2018 Compendium Assembly in Rijeka

October 9th and 10th, the Compendium of Cultural Policies and Trends will come together for its annual General Assembly (followed by a Public Forum on the 11th). This time we meet in Rijeka, Croatia. This General Assembly will be the 17th time that contributors and supporters come together to discuss the Compendium’s work in the field of cultural policy research, publication and analysis, and the first time it will do so as an Association.

With all the recent developments within the Compendium, this conference promises to be an eventful one. Dr. Ernst Wagner (ENO) will hold a keynote speech on Arts education in times of globalization and nationalism, a proposal for a renewed structure of the policy profiles will be discussed, as well as the Compendium’s plans and goals for the future.

The conference is open to

  • members of the Compendium Association as well as representatives of countries or institutions that consider joining it;
  • members of the Compendium Expert community;
  • other researchers and specialists working in the cultural policy domain.

Those interested to attend should contact the Compendium’s new Service Providing team via, so they look into providing you with accommodation. They have compiled a document with transfer options that will help make your journey to Rijeka a smooth one. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Helen Johnson (manager) or Sabine Zwart at their office mail address.  

Hoping to see you again in Rijeka!
