44th ENCATC Cultural Happy Hour goes to the Prague Creative Centre
On 17 May, the 44th ENCATC Cultural Happy Hour was organised at the Prague Creative Centre for 34 guests from 10 countries. It was a unique opportunity for our guests to visit this new hub established by Prague City Hall to be the city’s living and creative laboratory that links active inhabitants, representatives of non-governmental organisations and the private sector with representatives of the public sector to allow them to discover innovative solutions for a creative city and have the output of their cooperation integrated in the urban development strategy.
During this visit, ENCATC Board Member, Michal Laznovsky from DAMU - Theatre Faculty of AMU in Prague, presented the Centre for Architecture and Metropolitan Planning (CAMP) which guests would visit the next day.
This was a special Cultural Happy Hour as it was organised for students, young and early professionals attending the 2nd ENCATC Capacity Days and Youth in Action Day (17-19 May in Prague). The evening networking event had the particularly ambition to create transnational professional ties among students who will be tomorrow’s cultural managers.
This was also the first time the ENCATC Cultural Happy Hour was held in the Czech Republic. The popular networking initiative, first launched by ENCATC in 2013 has now organised events in Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and Spain.
