On 17 September from 16:00-17:30 CEST the 19th ENCATC Members Talk focused on “What are the digital challenges and opportunities for future ECOC’s cities?”
This event aimed to build on the capacity building
activities, namely Academy Camps and podcasts, carried out under the Capacity Building
for European Capitals of Culture contract
initiated by the European Commission to support capacity building and peer-
learning activities for ECOCs.
This session on “What are
the digital challenges and opportunities for the future
ECOC's cities?" highlighted different aspects of digital transition and digitalisation in the
context of ECOC. The topic was addressed in the
second Academy Camp , which took place earlier
this year. The second season of the podcast, which is currently being
developed, was also dedicated to this topic and invited experts to explore
different angles and applications.
The ENCATC Members Talk was an interactive format intended so a wider audience could join and engage in discussion. It aimed to bring together experts, who took part in the Academy Camps (AC) and/or podcasts on Digital Approaches to ECOCs (2nd AC and podcast series), ECOC delivery teams, actors from CCIs and other stakeholders to discuss and share on topic.
Participants were also strongly encouraged to attend the 18th ENCATC Members Talk to just proceeding this one starting at 14:00 on 17 September on the topic of “How can we become better in audience development?”
The ENCATC Members Talks are a space for members and partners to learn and exchange about projects and topics of interest for our membership. In this case, ENCATC, thanks to its involvement in this project, is offering the opportunity to its membership and the wider community to learn and exchange with high level experts on the topic of digital challenges and opportunities for ECOCs to enlarge their practical knowledge, improve their teaching, and deepen their research in this area.
The partners of the project include: Association Européenne pour l’Information sur le Développement Local (AEIDL) – Lead partner; Culture Action Europe (CAE), Interarts – Fundació Interarts per a la cooperació cultural internacional; European network on cultural management and policy (ENCATC); and United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG)
