Successful presentations by Mirko Petrić on cultural inequalities and the crucial role of cultural funding

Two recent presentations by Mirko Petrić of the Croatian INVENT team have drawn significant attention and acclaim, highlighting perceptions of cultural inequalities across Europe and the need to finance culture.

The first presentation, titled How citizens of nine European countries perceive inequalities in culture?, was held as an online lecture on January 31st, 2024. Organized by the Croatian Sociological Association and the Ivo Pilar Institute of Social Sciences, the event delved into the perceptions of cultural inequalities across Europe. Attended by sociologists, anthropologists, and cultural policy experts from four Croatian cities, the discussion proved to be fruitful, lasting for more than two hours.

Following the online success, Petrić’s second presentation, titled ‘Neoliberal fantasy of self-sustaining culture’: Why finance culture and how to do it? took place on February 7th, 2024. Hosted at the Multimedia Cultural Centre and the Youth House Split, with support from KLFM radio, the live event attracted a significant audience of between 30 to 40 individuals, marking a considerable turnout for such an occasion.

Both presentations received widespread acclaim for their insightful discussions and thought-provoking analyses. Notably, the event at the Youth House Split was video recorded for archival purposes, underscoring its significance in cultural discourse. Additionally, the sound recording of the event will soon be available on the KLFM radio web archive page, ensuring broader accessibility to Petrić’s compelling insights on cultural issues.
