DOMiDLabs at the LVR Culture Conference 2024


What ways and means does culture offer to help shape our society? Which culture is relevant for whom and why? Where is participation successful and what can new opening processes in the cultural sector look like?

This year's LVR Culture Conference took place on June 11th with the title Culture.Participation.Experience. digital and at the Max Ernst Museum Brühl des LVR. Cultural, political and scientific experts came together to discuss the current state of cultural participation and the consequences and perspectives for the cultural field.

The conference was opened by Madeleine Frey (Director of the Max Ernst Museum Brühl des LVR), Ulrike Lubek (Director of the Landschaftsverband Rheinland) and Ina Brandes (Minister for Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia). The morning program included keynotes, an artistic performance and panels. The afternoon program started with a Walk & Talk, during which project manager Sandra Vacca presented the DOMiDLabs. At the Walk & Talk, visitors had the opportunity to engage with representatives of selected projects and funding institutions. Moreover, visitors could choose between various workshops and guided tours with a focus on inclusive educational formats and methods through Max Ernst Museum Brühl des LVR. All program formats presented practical tools for daily cultural work and provided insights into the participants’ wealth of experience.

Since 2013, the LVR (Rhineland Regional Council) has been inviting Rhineland cultural stakeholders to the annual LVR cultural conferences under the motto "Rhineland Cultural Campaign". In addition to information on current cultural political topics, suggestions and proposals from the cultural regions of the Rhineland form the platform for the conference themes. The LVR Cultural Conferences take place at different locations each year, thus highlighting the cultural diversity of the Rhineland.
