With the Government of Mexico as host of this edition, the event will be held until September 30 with an extensive program of forums and international meetings sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and allied institutions.
Mondiacult 2022 will take place within the framework of the 40th anniversary of the first World Conference of this type, also held in Mexico in 1982, and its central objective will be to reflect on cultural policies in the current context.
Thematic axes of the event are also the adaptation of the cultural sector to the digital transformation, the contribution of culture to social and economic development, and to climate action, and the transversal function of culture as a facilitator of resilience, well-being and prosperity.
