Academy Camps

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.



Academy Camp 2: Digital

The second Academy Camp took the form of six online sessions from May to October 2021 with the delivery team and partners of Chemnitz 2025. It was focused on Digital approaches to European Capitals of Culture (ECOCs), specifically how digital is revolutionising the ECOCs’ planning and delivery, in particular in the spheres of communications, evaluation, artistic programming, project management and building communities.
