Culture Summitt UCLG

Some pictures from the third UCLG #cultureSummit , hosted in Buenos Aires.

The summit has become the largest global gathering of cities and local governments for the purpose of discussing culture as a motor for #sustainabledevelopment.

I led a discussion on definitions of data and research frameworks in order to capture meaningful evidence in cities. I referred to the complexity behind #Impacts18 as a longitudinal programme with valuable data that may or may not tell meaningful stories. We explored what we mean by data, how technology affects our capacity to capture culture in cities and the ongoing need for alternatives to classic research and evaluation models.
