The aim of the panel on Cultural Policy, Creativity and Smart Management in Central and Eastern Europe addresses the framework of public policy and cultural planning, which are perceived as driving tools for smart development. Relations between the arts, culture, creativity and government policies will be addressed under the umbrella of the 27th NISPAcee conference to take a multi-actor approach to cultural policy analysis and management (policy design, implementation, and learning).
