The European Commission is organizing a structured dialogue with the cultural sector to reflect on capacity building for heritage professionals and on the transmission of traditional skills and know-how in emerging professions, including in the context of the digital shift.
Are you interested in the traditional and emerging heritage? Especially in its skills or training?
The selected applicants will first take part in a Brainstorming Session which represents the opportunity for a group of around 35 European civil society stakeholders in the cultural sector to exchange ideas on this topic and to present these to the European Commission. The group will brainstorm on 15-16 June 2017, and then have the opportunity, in September 2017, to discuss their main ideas (to be summarised in a Brainstorming Report) with the European Commission at a Dialogue Meeting in Brussels.
The call is open to representatives of the cultural and creative sectors (professional organisations, cultural institutions, non-governmental organisations, European networks, foundations, private organisations, etc.) with relevant expertise on the topic “Skills, training and knowledge transfer: traditional and emerging heritage”, who would like to contribute to discussions with the European Commission. Organisations applying must be from one of the 28 EU Member States.
Make sure the voice of your sector is heard and apply to participate!
The deadline for applications is 14 March 2017.
