UNESCO Symposium: Funding Culture, Managing the Risk

As part of its commitment to studying and promoting the critical relationship between culture and development, UNESCO is organizing a two-day symposium to analyse and challenge the perception of risk in funding the cultural and creative sectors in the developing economies.ConceptDespite culture’s great potential for socio-economic development and poverty reduction, it remains marginalized in development policies and programmes. Furthermore, the sector suffers from a lack of access to funding, especially in developing countries, due to the perception, often based on false premises, that such investments are more risk-prone.
