The opening session saw the participation of relevant institutional actors, including Amb.

A better knowledge of the opportunities offered, together with a reinforced dialogue in the field of culture by identifying issues of common interest and sharing excellence and best practises to support artistic entrepreneurship, creative start-ups and contemporary art festivals, would indeed enable decision and policy-makers to propose better tools for the encouragement of job creation and employment.
