On August 29th Eduard Miralles, president of Interarts, left us. After the shock for his unexpected and premature loss, the Foundation has decided to promote and coordinate a tribute to his renowned professional career in the field of cultural management and international cultural cooperation, especially as regards the role of local governments. The event, co-organized with the Associació de Professionals de la Gestió Cultural de Catalunya (APGCC), will take place on November 29th at the Centre d’Estudis i Recursos Culturals (CERC) in Barcelona. It will be structured in three sessions focusing on those aspects that have marked Eduard’s career: Training for cultural management, International cultural cooperation and Culture and proximity. Interarts hopes that this will be the first of a series of annual meetings in which to discuss relevant issues for professionals specialised in cultural management and international cultural cooperation. The program attached includes the names of the experts and personalities that will participate in the event. We invite all those who would like to join, either in person or from a distance, to fill in the registration form under these lines before NEW DATE: November 9 (given the limited capacity of the venue, prior registration is necessary). We would also like to gather personal expressions and memories of Eduard for the event: we therefore encourage all those who wish to make a contribution to send us their text, photo or video to this email address (interarts@interarts.net) or through WhatsApp (to the following number: +34 607 236 675) (before: NEW DATE: November 9 ).

Interarts is grateful for the collaboration of the Ajuntament de Barcelona, the Diputació de Barcelona, the Ministerio de Cultura y Deporte and the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation/ Agencia Española de Cooperación Internacional para le Desarrollo (AECID) in the organization of the event.
