Academy Camp 1: Audience Development

The first Academy Camp focused on audience development directed to Elefsina’s 2023 delivery team and other actors of the cultural and social life of this Greek city. Capacity building for effective Audience Development means actually developing competences & new ways of working and collaborating.

Which innovative methods have enabled to draw attention from the international media? As a complement, the instrument of open international calls for projects will be addressed.

26-11-2021: Managing international cultural cooperation – financing. Information desks and stakeholders representing funding programmes for international cultural cooperation projects will share current opportunities.
