At the conference, cultural organisations and experts will have a chance to gain a fuller insight into the state of cultural policies and practice across the region, and to exchange opinions, practices, and experiences in the field of cultural policy.

The progamme will investigate media coverage of cultural policy, its challenges and its understanding throughout the region and will be moderated by  Gordana Igric, BIRN Regional Director. Guest speakers will include Aliriza Arenliu, executive director of DOKUFEST from Prizren, Jelena Knezevic, executive director of BITEF from Belgrade, Elma Tataragic, screenwriter, professor and SFF selector from Sarajevo, and Lutfi Dervishi, lecturer at the School of Journalism, at the University of Tirana and director of Transparency International in Tirana.

Editors from various media outlets in the region will share their experience and views on problems and difficulties in the media coverage of cultural policies.

Key speakers will be Halil Matoshi, from Koha Ditore in Pristina, Marija Djordjevic, from Politika in  Belgrade and Admirina Peci, from Gazeta Shqiptare in Tirana.

In the afternoon, a workshop will be held which aims to encourage debate in smaller groups on the role of the media in the cultural arena and to produce action points and recommendations for further development, as part of the project and for presentation to key opinion makers, one of the wider goals of the BICCED project.
