Number 444 18 January 2024



Hello  ACORNS subscriber

Welcome to your first ACORNS for 2024, where we share a brief global news round up. The UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation programme were recently announced with 12 projects that recognise the efforts of private individuals and organisations in restoring, conserving, and transforming structures and buildings of heritage value in the region. In Europe, initial reports on the Basic Income for the Arts (BIA) pilot scheme in Ireland reveal positive impacts: recipients invest more time in their arts practice, experience reduced depression and anxiety, and work fewer hours in other sectors. Minister Catherine Martin highlighted these findings as evidence supporting the scheme's potential to transform creative practice, aiming to enable artists to sustain careers in the arts without economic necessity in other sectors, emphasising the necessity of ongoing research and support for the arts in Ireland. In Scotland, the government’s 14-week public consultation, gathering opinions on an International Culture Strategy, revealed the importance of diverse international activities across sectors for respondents, with motivations including networking, knowledge sharing, and financial support.

UNESCO has been reinforcing a transatlantic network of cultural heritage protection connecting Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa. UNESCO recently conducted a capacity-building workshop in Rio de Janeiro for law enforcement, judiciary, and museum professionals from 14 Latin American, Caribbean, and African countries to enhance expertise in protecting movable cultural heritage, emphasising regional cooperation to combat looting and illicit trade. Participants highlighted the need to update national legislation, leverage available tools like the UNESCO Database of National Cultural Heritage Laws, involve Indigenous communities, and prioritise awareness to prevent cultural property trafficking.

Meanwhile, significant developments at COP28, the 28th United Nations Climate Change conference, held from 30 November to 12 December in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, centre on cultural heritage and climate change, acknowledging cultural heritage within the Global Goal on Adaptation and fostering the Group of Friends of Culture-Based Climate Action, which has led to the adoption of the Emirates Declaration on Culture-Based Climate Action. The Emirates Declaration recognises cultural heritage's vulnerability to climate change, emphasising the need for adaptive strategies and resilience, although criticisms remain over inadequate finance for adaptation. Additionally, the establishment of a Loss and Damage Fund aiming to support recovery efforts, including cultural heritage, garnered attention, yet current pledges fall short of the substantial funding required. Moving forward, efforts aim to advance heritage action by outlining measures under the Global Goal on Adaptation, advocating for cultural heritage programmes at future COP conferences, and addressing non-economic loss and damage of cultural heritage, seeking innovative compensation mechanisms. This Declaration paves the way for the adoption of a Joint Work Decision on Culture-Based Climate Action at COP29 which will take place in Europe in one year’s time, and subsequently to a related action plan ahead of COP30 in Brazil.


IFACCA Announcements

In Memoriam: Kevin Golding

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Kevin Golding, a cherished member of the IFACCA Secretariat team. Kevin has played a pivotal role since the very beginnings of IFACCA, contributing significantly during its inception while he served at the Australia Council, and continuing until the present as a Financial Advisor. Kevin's impact reached far beyond the realm of arts finance, as evidenced by his extensive tenure at the Australia Council (now Creative Australia) from 1999 to 2016, where, as Senior Policy Analyst, he provided invaluable support to major performing and SME arts organisations nationwide.

Kevin's commitment to community service was equally remarkable. In 2002, he was honoured by the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Business Association (SGLBA) for his outstanding contribution to Sydney's gay and lesbian community, and his behind-the-scenes efforts established a solid foundation for numerous organisations, including the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, Sydney Star Observer, DIVA Awards, The Aurora Group and ACON. Kevin's legacy of love, professionalism, commitment, and generosity will endure, and he will be dearly missed as an irreplaceable member of the IFACCA family. Our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.


Changes on the IFACCA Board and at the Secretariat

The IFACCA Board appointed Ms Julie Diphofa, Interim Chief Executive Officer of the National Arts Council of South Africa (NAC) on 31 October 2023. With more than 20 years of dedicated service at senior management and executive levels, Ms Diphofa has played a pivotal role in the development, advocacy, and promotion of the arts within the South African context. Read more.

In contrast, we bid farewell to Mr Nicholas Moyo, former Director of the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe (NACZ), who has concluded his term on the Board due to his recent appointment as Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Sports, Recreation, Arts, and Culture, Zimbabwe. As he embarks on this exciting new chapter, we extend our heartfelt best wishes to him and express our sincere gratitude for his dedicated commitment to the Federation.

At the end of 2023 we also bid farewell to Elena Polivtseva, Senior Researcher at IFACCA who concluded her work, having joined the Secretariat in June 2022. Elena leaves her mark on projects including the IFACCA Member Hub, as well as various public and members’ only knowledge and data reports such as our Dossier for MONDIACULT 2022, the Executive Leaders’ Seminar White Paper and the 9th World Summit Report, amongst others. Elena's dedication and contributions have been invaluable, and we wish her every success in her new endeavours.

Empezamos el año con noticias en políticas culturales de todo el mundo

Bienvenido/a a su primer ACORNS de 2024, en el que damos un repaso a noticias internacionales. Recientemente, se han anunciado los premios UNESCO de Asia-Pacífico de Preservación del Patrimonio a doce proyectos, en reconocimiento de los esfuerzos de diversas personas y entidades en la restauración, conservación y transformación de estructuras y edificios valiosos para el patrimonio de la región. En Europa, los primeros informes sobre el programa piloto de renta mínima para las artes (BIA en inglés) en Irlanda revelan efectos positivos: los/las beneficiarios/as dedicaron más tiempo a su práctica artística, disminuyeron  la depresión y la ansiedad, y trabajaron menos horas en otros sectores. La ministra Catherine Martin destacó estos resultados como prueba del potencial del programa para transformar la práctica creativa y permitir a los/las artistas ejercer su carrera artística sin necesidades económicas en otros sectores, y subrayó la necesidad de continuar investigando y apoyando las artes en Irlanda. En Escocia, una consulta pública a lo largo de 14 semanas recogió opiniones sobre una estrategia internacional para la cultura y reveló la importancia de las actividades internacionales para los participantes en todos los sectores, motivados por las redes de contactos, oportunidades de conocimiento, y apoyo económico.

La UNESCO ha reforzado una red transatlántica de protección del patrimonio cultural en Latinoamérica, el Caribe y África con un reciente taller de desarrollo de capacidades en Río de Janeiro destinado a profesionales de museos, judiciales y policía de 14 países latinoamericanos, caribeños y africanos para mejorar la experticia en la protección del patrimonio cultural móvil, con énfasis en la cooperación regional para combatir el pillaje y el comercio ilegal. Los/las participantes destacaron la necesidad de actualizar las legislaciones nacionales respectivas, usar herramientas como la base de datos UNESCO de leyes nacionales sobre el patrimonio cultural, contar con las comunidades indígenas, y dar prioridad a la concienciación para evitar el tráfico de propiedad cultural.

Mientras tanto, la Conferencia de las Partes de la 28ª Conferencia de las Naciones Unidas sobre Cambio Climático, COP28, se celebró en Dubái, Emiratos Árabes Unidos, del 30 de noviembre al 12 de diciembre y registró avances relevantes en materia de patrimonio cultural y cambio climático, con el reconocimiento del patrimonio en el Objetivo Global de Adaptación y la promoción del Grupo de Amigos de la Acción Climática basada en la Cultura, que dio lugar a la adopción de la Declaración de los Emiratos sobre la Acción Climática basada en la Cultura. La Declaración de los Emiratos  reconoce la vulnerabilidad del patrimonio cultural respecto al cambio climático y destaca la necesidad de estrategias de adaptación y resiliencia, aunque con críticas a la inadecuada financiación para la adaptación. También llamó la atención el establecimiento de un Fondo de Pérdida y Daños para apoyar los esfuerzos de recuperación, a pesar de que los compromisos actuales no alcanzan el sustancial financiamiento necesario. Los esfuerzos se centrarán a partir de ahora en avanzar las acciones sobre el patrimonio mediante el detalle de las medidas en el marco del Objetivo Global de Adaptación, abogar por programas de patrimonio cultural en las próximas conferencias COP, y tratar las pérdidas no económicas y el daño al patrimonio cultural mediante mecanismos de compensación innovadores. Esta Declaración abre el camino para la adopción de una Decisión Común de Trabajo sobre la Acción Climática basada en la Cultura que se producirá en Europa dentro de un año, y tras ella, para un plan de acción hacia COP30 en Brasil.

En memoria de Kevin Golding

Con profunda tristeza anunciamos el fallecimiento de Kevin Golding, apreciado miembro del equipo del Secretariado de IFACCA. Kevin ha desempeñado un papel fundamental desde los inicios de IFACCA, contribuyendo significativamente a su desarrollo mientras trabajaba en el Consejo de Cultura de Australia, y continuando hasta el presente como nuestro Asesor Financiero.

El compromiso de Kevin con el servicio a la comunidad fue igualmente notable. En 2002, fue galardonado por Sydney Gay and Lesbian Business Association (SGLBA) por su destacada contribución a la comunidad gay y lesbiana de Sídney, y sus esfuerzos en apoyar el establecimiento de una base sólida para numerosas organizaciones, como el festival ydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, Sydney Star Observer, DIVA Awards, The Aurora Group y ACON. El legado de amor, profesionalismo, compromiso y generosidad de Kevin perdurará, y se le echará mucho de menos como miembro insustituible de la familia de IFACCA. Nuestro más sentido pésame a su familia y amigos/as.
