Philanthropy, Development and the Arts – Check Out Our Conference Website

The first conference of our ERC project Developing Theatre will be focusing on „Philanthropy, Development and the Arts: Histories and Theories“ and is taking place from 23-25 July, 2018, at Carl Friedrich von Siemens Foundation in Munich.

20 speakers from 13 different countries were selected for interdisciplinarily interrogating the interrelationship between philanthropic foundations and NGOs, the notion of „development“, and the visual and performing arts throughout the 20th and 21st centuries.

We set up a website/blog for the conference. All updates and info can be retrieved there.

Conference attendance is free of charge, yet registration is required.
