FLEXIBLE AND INCLUSIVE PUBLIC ARTS POLICY and ACTION PLAN

REFLECTING ON, EDUCATING AND INVOLVING COMMUNITIES IN THE PROCESS OF IMAGINING, PRODUCING AND ENJOYING PUBLIC ARTS

 Based on the bottom up methodology, the recommendations for public institutions derive from data collected through HARP Project by Ekphrasis Studio from March 2018- May 2019, and are reflected in the Public Arts Policy and Action Plan (2019-2024) Table. These documents call for an inclusive and sustainable participatory decision & art making process for all stakeholders, and under 1 Vision, 1 Mission, 6 Principles, 4 Goals, emphasizes the empowerment of the civil society, through 5 Strategic Instruments (Service and Decentralization, Funding, Education and Capacity Building, Local and International Development, Research and Education). It includes 33 Policy Actions detailed in the Action Plan (2019-2025) proposing Civil-Public-Private Partnerships (CPPP), including Tirana Municipality Public Arts Councils and Tirana County Public Arts Council, a regional representation of 5 municipal territories, initiated by civil sector involving private sector, which can be replicated in Albania.

It is recommended that by September 2019, Tirana Municipality develops, adapts and approves a Public Arts Policy and Action Plan, while the Ministry of Culture as it is currently developing a National Culture Strategy should incorporate Public Arts Policy recommendations in this strategic document and adopt a National Public Arts Action Plan through a transparent and inclusive process
