newsletter El Niño and its torrential rains permitting, the eighth South American Dakar Rally should be underway right now around Argentina, Bolivia and Chile. It is well known that since 2008 when the French government recommended suspending the two- and four-wheel motor sport race created in 1978 due to the risk of terrorist attacks on African soil, the rally underwent a change of scenario and continent, though it retained its unmistakable original brand name.

Today, brands coexist with flags and are gradually replacing shields. In addition, brands are relocated, becoming a kind of reference point for new global franchises. To refer to the Guggenheim is no longer to speak only of New York, nor is the Hermitage a museum solely in the city of St. Petersburg, but rather with new headquarters in such far-flung places as Amsterdam, Malaga and-who knows-maybe shortly in Barcelona.

Since 1977 when Milton Glaser came up with 'I love NY' as an emblematic slogan encapsulating the presence of his city in the global market for new urban opportunities, many other world cities have followed in its wake. We no longer talk of city models, but city brands. But perhaps the dilemma between brand and model in cities is a false one: without a solid story and without their necessary ownership by citizens, both notions are rendered artificial and inconsistent.

Eduard Miralles, President of the Board of the Interarts Foundation

newsletter Music and broadcasting sector of Medellin mission to Barcelona newsletter
newsletter
newsletter interarts As part of the project 'FomeccBiz Medellin-Barcelona: generating a cultural and creative business network for local development. Phase II', from 30 November to 5 December, a 'Trade and knowledge mission of entrepreneurs and musicians from Medellin to Barcelona' took place. The aims were to build partnerships between cultural agents from both cities, showcase Medellin's culture, act as a driver for Colombian goods and services on the Catalan and Spanish markets, and push forward thinking on local initiatives for cultural entrepreneurship, especially music, and investment in cultural products and services. Four representatives of Medellin's music and broadcasting sector took part, in addition to strategic cultural agents, mainly producers, from Barcelona. The mission included a 'meeting among music industry and transmedia professionals from Barcelona and Medellin' on 1 December, at which cultural and creative agents from Barcelona and Medellin shared experiences and proposals and began to forge future professional collaborations. The participants included representatives of associate bodies AVA (Broadcasting, Video Games and Animation Association) and Gestar Cultural from Medellin; international experts Xavier Capellas and Toni Marin; musician Carlos Andrés Giraldo and the band Autor Anónimo, which presented along with AVA and Gestar Cultural the co-creation transmedia project 'Medellin, a story to hear', developed as part of this project. The day concluded with a panel discussion which gave the audience, who were mainly sector professionals from Barcelona, the opportunity to discuss some of the issues addressed with the associates. The mission report and the meeting report are already available. 'FomeccBiz Medellin-Barcelona: generating a cultural and creative business network for local development. Phase II' is run by Interarts and the Faculty of Arts at the University of Antioquia with the support of Barcelona City Council's 'Barcelona Solidarity 2014' programme. newsletter

Part of the assessment was carried out at the partners meeting, which includes Interarts, in Alexandria, Egypt, from 7 to 9 December.

newsletter Cultural Policy Barometer 2015: first results newsletter
newsletter
newsletter The first week of December was the deadline to participate in the Cultural Policy Barometer 2015 launched by the Regional Observatory on Culture in East-Central Europe (The Budapest Observatory). In the wake of the complete report, a preliminary sample of the results of the survey and the comparison with data of the 2014 edition is already available. This first draft highlights that participants in the survey consider that the most crucial element for culture is that, given the budget that it is allocated, it is not considered by governments as a priority. The draft also highlights that, however, the most positive aspect is that cultural participation is not overwhelmed by commercial interests. newsletter

The report showcases 27 examples of policy and practice drawing from the experiences of over 40 cities in Asia and Europe, which reveal how cities' capacity to act quickly and provide more integrated responses makes them labs for artistic and cultural initiatives.
