In the Cultural World, the recent upheavals have accelerated concerns, thinking and trends of before. They have revelated the urge of more social equity, climate action and digital readiness. This unprecedented shock has made the world conscious that now more action is expected than ever. As they are seen as the most credible institutions in the world – like expressed by the G20 – cultural venues have a deep role and a tremendous responsibility.

A new model is emerging: a cultural venue that goes beyond its walls, that contributes to society more than ever and that tends to become a hybrid platform for multiple resources.

The cultural world is at the edge of a deep reset.
