The discussion paper for the 7th World Summit on Arts and Culture will address the theme of Cultural Leadership, with a focus on perspectives from the wider sector, how leaders acquire and develop their skills, and how government arts and culture funding and policy agencies support leaders.

The paper will be informed by the results of a series of surveys that IFACCA has conducted with various stakeholders from the sector. The discussion paper will be published in October, and following the Summit will be developed and published within IFACCA's D'Art Topics in Arts Policy report series.
