Agenda brings a creative and solution-focused approach to cultural communications and development.
Our mission is to raise cultural institutions’ international profiles.
Our strength lies in our network of 18’000 professionals worldwide.
1. Foster Professional Development
Our goal is to help cultural leaders to thrive in their career. We provide practical tools to develop strategic communication plan and sucessful fundraising. Communicating the Arts and Culture Business conferences reveal speakers’ talent and delegates’ skills.
2. Encourage Diversity
Diversity makes events better. At Agenda, we value variety and want to ensure that minorities are part of the conversation. We believe that leaders and innovators from diverse backgrounds and continents will improve our conferences. They contribute to a more global change in the art sector. We encourage leaders from heritage, visual and performing art to share best practices.
3. Support Emerging Leaders
The 30 UNDER 30 project, an initiative by Agenda, supports emerging professionals by inviting them to our conferences. This is an opportunity for them to develop their skills, explore big issues, learn from best practices and build their network.
4. Promote Artistic Creation
We look to artists to shape our future. By inviting artists, curators, artistic directors to join us on stage, we bring a inspiring voice to the conversation. We support cultural and artistic creation both at the conference and in public space.
5. Engage for the planet
We are actively trying to reduce the footprint of our conferences. Re-used materials, vegetarian options and locally-sourced food are a priority. Our venues and hotels are within walking distance. Together with them we are reducing plastic waste and encouraging participants to do the same.
