Horizons of Sustainability: The Power of Creative Innovation for Transformation of Rural and Non-Urban Futures

The “Horizons of Sustainability: The Power of Creative Innovation for Transformation of Rural and Non-Urban Futures” Conference will take place in Šibenik, Croatia, from 25 to 27 September 2024, organised within the project IN SITU – Place-based Innovation of Cultural and Creative Industries in Non-urban Areas. This event is led by the IN SITU partners Kultura Nova Foundation in cooperation with the Centre for Social Studies of the University of Coimbra. It is supported by the European Union’s Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Programme (under Grant Agreement no. 101061747) and the Central European Initiative.

IN SITU is a four-year project that combines research and experimental actions to advance the innovation-related practices, capacities, and potentials of cultural and creative industries (CCIs) based in non-urban and rural areas of the EU. The project aims to better understand their forms, processes, and governance needs and to advance the ability of non-urban and rural CCIs to act as drivers of innovation, competitiveness, and sustainability. Ultimately, the aim is to contribute to a more informed and sustainable future for practitioners in cultural and creative industries based in non-urban and rural areas.

This first international conference of the IN SITU project will explore the transformative power of innovative approaches of cultural and creative agents in forging more equitable and sustainable communities beyond urban centres.

In this event, we wish to inspire new ways of learning from one another. We aim to create an intimate environment that enables meaningful discussions and networking opportunities across research, culture-based creative practice, and planning and policy-making spheres. Therefore, within the conference, we will create different spaces and opportunities to foster exchange and dialogue with non-conventional approaches that fully place participants in the context of the place where the event is located. This also means that the number of presentations will be limited to allow for these other approaches.

We invite proposals for presentations of papers and projects from scholars, researchers, artists, cultural practitioners, activists, policymakers and decision-makers from across the world and a broad range of disciplines.

All proposals should make an original contribution to the topic of place-based innovation and the transformative power of the creative and cultural sector in forging more equitable and sustainable communities in rural and non-urban areas.
