What is a cultural strategy?
In December 2019, the cultural administration was commissioned to develop an Innsbruck Cultural Strategy 2030 with broad public participation. The status quo in Innsbruck was examined and perspectives for future cultural urban development were identified. The goals, tasks and self-image of cultural policy, cultural administration and cultural scenes were also questioned. A cultural strategy is an important part of urban development, therefore relevant cross-sectional areas concerning art and culture are included.
What is the goal of the cultural strategy?
As a sustainable basis for cultural policy action in our city, the cultural strategy should contain priorities, guidelines and concrete measures for implementation. It is intended to serve as a framework of orientation for actors in politics, administration and the cultural scene.
Why a cultural strategy?
Action needs strategy!
When the city and its citizens agree on the important goals and measures and act accordingly, they create more - this is especially true for the arts and culture agendas of a city, an area that is often affected by stagnating or declining public funding and in which there are many different interests and actors.
Guidelines provide important orientation:
- For policymakers and administrators: guidelines provide clarity about the role of arts and culture in the context of other city responsibilities, and they help guide the use of public funds in a targeted and prioritized way that maximizes their impact.
- For the arts and culture scenes: Cultural policy guidelines also provide orientation for their own work and political decisions, which are made on the basis of these guidelines and criteria and make them comprehensible and transparent.
