Welcome @ ENCC Travelling Academy
The enhancement of citizen’s active participation in cultural and democratic life is at the core of the Cultural centers missions and ambition. In a context in which digitalization deeply impacts our societies and cultures, a variety of experimentations linked with civic participation, artistic practices and audience development, are emerging in Europe. Digitalization implies new ways of connecting, collaborating and sharing with each other. It offers new possibilities for instance for citizens to organize and tackle shared challenges, to invent new forms of resilience, solidarities and powers in urban and rural neighborhood. It also opens new fields in amateur practices and education: new forms of education, do it yourself practices, etc.
What is the role of Cultural centers in these emerging ecosystems of dynamic civic and cultural participation? How can we imagine new ways of engaging with audiences and with transformation in our societies? Which cooperation can we build on these subjects?
This meeting will provide a eld to exchange ideas and practices in the subject of civic participation and audience development at the age of digi- talization between European cultural centers, local stakeholders in Kraków and in Poland and innovators working in this field. We are building a 3 days programme with workshops, city study tours and Forum to work actively on this subject.
