Every fall the major figures in the culture, economy, and politics gather together at the CultureInvest Congress to develop criteria for the design of the cultural market.
The 7th CultureInvest Congress, which took place on October 29 and 30, 2015, focused on the topic of "The Future of Cultural Funding," which ran like a red thread through the entire congress program. For the first time a star-studded concluding discussion formed an integral part of the congress program. It helped deepen the key messages of the congress, and forward-looking approaches to the sustainable financing of culture were discussed. During the two days of the congress more than 75 renowned speakers reflected on models and methods for facilitating interaction between culture and industry as well as between the public sector and media across ten topics.
