REvisiting Borders

The 2021 ACMC is a joint initiative with ENCATC, aiming to foster innovative and necessary conversations with the theme of REvisiting Borders. #ACMC21 aims to provide an engaging space for students and emerging professionals to explore, question, and discuss what borders mean in today’s world, especially within the arts and culture field.

Participants are invited to deepen the conversation through other key themes:

  • REsilience
  • REinterpret
  • REimagine

The call for submissions is now closed.

Applicants will be notified of their application outcome on Friday 30 October 2020.


Following the previous editions of this conference in Hamburg, Vienna, and Groningen, we are focusing on international cooperation now more than ever via Localized Hubs. This year we invite country-based groups of students and emerging professionals to create and curate their own agenda as part of this three-day virtual event.
