A varied and turbulent year 2021 is drawing to a close. The COVID-19 pandemic is leaving its mark and will also accompany us into 2022. We - the Culture and Development Team and the Community of Practice Culture Matters - were able to take away many new impulses despite globally destabilizing times. Learning from a crisis, promoting cohesion and working together for culture and development remains our goal in 2022. We have commissioned the cultural activist François Matarasso to prepare
two further reflection papers that take up valuable thoughts, action directions and discussion points inherent in or emerging from the crisis for the field of culture and development. Furthermore, there are inspiring
Blog-Contributions by the Community of Practice that provide insights to projects that emerged and got realized in 2021.
