PROJECT IN A NUTSHELL
The project partnership establishes the idea of Living Industrial Culture in Central Europe and reveals, strengthens and utilizes the unique cultural spirit of industrial regions. They jointly set out to discover their industry-based culture for positioning themselves as appealing places for work, life and recreation. Past, present and future cultural assets related to industry are used as one powerful force. Industrial Culture becomes a dynamic concept mirroring earlier and ongoing transformations of industrial economy and actively shaping the cultural sphere of the affected communities.
The project is already halfway! We will celebrate this with a three-day midterm event. Partners will meet in the former mining region of Belgium to present their achievements.
A policy seminar and networking dinner is organized on 22.03 in the European Parliament (Brussels)! Keynote speakers tackle the topic of Industrial Culture, followed by a panel debate.
The event is open to invitees, partners and stakeholders.
The Padova Chamber of Commerce has published a competition notice for an international artistic competition dedicated to the theme of industrial culture. It wants to stimulate and promote the use of art as an innovative tool to disseminate the concept of "industrial culture", with particular reference to the Central European Regions.
Advancing through its third term the InduCult2.0 partnership gathers in Opole. Sharing experiences will take the project forward – advancing from the conceptual phase to actual strategy and action planning. The hard work will be alternated with interesting study tours.
The event is open to project partners and stakeholders.
In April the 10 InduCult2.0 Partners meet up for a second time. Teaming up with the stakeholders, the partnership will exchange experiences on best practices, while developing concepts for the activities set out in the three thematic work packages.
The event is open to the project partners and their regional stakeholders in charge of Industrial Culture or representatives of associated partners, e.g. from public administrations, museums, chambers, educational bodies, relevant associations, creative clusters; relevant EU-networks.
However, participation in Steering Group Meeting on 14/10 is limited to project partners.
