“With the conference »Culture – development potentials?« we are aiming toward several main goals. Firstly, we wish to bring to Slovenia during what is perhaps the most important cultural event in Slovenia so far, number of leading experts from the fields of cultural economics, cultural policy, cultural management and other social and human sciences which have culture as their main research objective. We managed to do this previously, in 2010, when several of world leading experts from the field of cultural economics have lectured at the symposium »Economics of the Visual Arts« and we wish to continue where we have begun at that moment.”
