Naturally, artists always network with one another in the scope of their work. However, the specific network meetings and method-oriented workshops by Culture and Development link stakeholders, initiatives, and institutions from Germany and from the partner countries so that together they draw attention to common socio-political issues. They enable cultural professionals, activists, interested persons, buyers, and critics to discuss crucial social subject matter from all genres. Journeys for experts and exchange programmes between institutions also enable the stakeholders to consult with one another and provide and receive stimuli. Only institutions with a need, demand, and interest in new contacts are involved in the advisory work so that it evolves into a dialogue and discourse between autonomous partners.
