Online handbook: Cultural Relations in the New Normal

Online handbook: Cultural Relations in the New Normal

Alteration Programme presents best practices for international cultural relations adapting to pandemic-induced uncertainty, changes and instability.

The Alteration Programme consisted of a series of online events for professionals in the cultural field, running from April to July 2021. It aimed at defining new, efficient approaches to establishing, building, and developing intercultural relations and connections between EU and Ukrainian cultural and civil society actors in conditions of pandemic-induced uncertainty, changes, and instability. Now the results have been published in the handbook Cultural Relations of The New Normal.

The initiators, the Ukrainian Institute and the Ukraine EU Delegation, supported via the EU-funded Cultural Relations Platform, invited professionals from the cultural, creative and civic society sectors to explore how to approach intercultural relations in conditions of pandemic-induced uncertainty. We hope that it will become a source of inspiration for other actors in the cultural, creative and civil society sectors facing similar challenges around the world.

The programme covered questions such as: How should international cultural relations adapt to this “new reality?” How should digital tools be used for better efficiency? What best case practices exist in international cultural relations and among cultural institutions in the EU and in Ukraine? And, lastly, how can cultural initiatives and products be promoted using digital tools?
