The analyses and debates represent an essential component
of the ARCult programme since its beginning. Starting 2005, this action
line is developed
under the title "The ARCult Forum" - as a process of analysis,
proposals and debates aiming at contributing to the design of a long
term cultural strategy in Romania. The following events took place in
2005: Who's afraid of the independent sector?
The debate under this title aimed to bring into discussion the notions
of "independent", "non-governmental", or "freelance",
alternatively trying to differentiate between the institutional, legal
and artistic levels. It also set out to bring forward the different
perspectives and practices concerning the above-mentioned issues in
the Romanian context.
