Online workshop - Cultural policies and their social impacts

Scientific productions

The MESOC Workshop "Societal Impacts of culture: A transitional perspective" took place on-line on March 3rd 2021 and was open to the public. 
It was dedicated to an in-depth exploration of the different dimensions of transition enabled by cultural policies and activities within the three MESOC impact domains, i.e. 1) Health and Wellbeing, 2) Urban and Territorial Renovation and 3) People’s Engagement and Participation. International guests introduced key concepts and approaches and provided further inputs to the validation of MESOC conceptual and analytical approach. In addition, three thematic round-tables provided the chance to debate with key experts both theoretical and methodological challenges related to MESOC framework and tools.
