Dear Jammers,

Thank you for spending 7 hours with us and participating in this joint exercise of co-creating a cultural scenario.

Culture Action Europe (CAE) initiated discussion process among cultural operators to contribute to a vision guiding us into a sustainable future of the European project. We are reaching out, taking pulse of the cultural sector from Europe and beyond to collectively shape a cultural scenario. Hub meetings, complemented by this online Jamm’Europe session closes the first phase of Culture Action Europe's #EuropeofCulture journey. We will now collect all your inputs and draft a joint manifesto that will be shared with you and opened for comments.

Five questions of the Jamm’Europe will still be open for comments until 12 July. If you haven’t had the chance to join us live, you can still post your thoughts.

We’d really like to thank you for your time, for your ideas and for your passion in sharing your views. But, most of all, we want to thank you for caring enough to be with us in this adventure.

In the meantime, we hope you find the time, the space, the energy and the funding to create whatever you need to create.

The Jamm Team

I tend to believe more in that option, than TV-vote, despite agreeing with much Tamer Levent said.

"The hierarchy has changed. We now all have a share in each of those 3 roles - community, artist, professional- in varying degrees. But embarrassment or ridicule is still often more comfortable than experimenting with this new situation.

"Thanks Christopher. Interesting if you can share your experiences on how to (re)connect three point of a triangle you are referring to?"

"Thanks! Ideas on how to engage/get artists, cultural operators more interested in such discussions? Or you want to say that the debate in itself was not relevant? Also, could you elaborate on "European citizenship classes"?"
