Collab 4 HySust CCI
Transnational Opening Event in Plovdiv, Bulgaria
INVITATION TO CULTURAL AND CREATIVE INITIATIVES
FOR A MEETING IN PLOVDIV
We are excited to announce the upcoming Transnational Launch Event, a hybrid gathering centered around the Balkan region, set to take place in Plovdiv, Bulgaria on September 1st, 2023. This event offers a fantastic opportunity for participants to gain practical advice and valuable insights on thriving in the Creative and Cultural Industries (CCI) ecosystem in South East Europe. It also explores the potential of establishing sustainable relationships with audiences through hybrid means.
The Transnational Launch Event is organized by Intercultura consult as a host in collaboration with Plovdiv – European Capital of Culture 2019 – as an Associated Partner, with the aim of identifying specific needs of CCI organizations in the Balkan region and boosting their visibility. Leveraging Plovdiv's rich legacy as a European Capital of Culture, the event will create an ideal environment for fostering collaboration.
The in-person component of the event will feature representatives from 20 organizations in the Balkan region who are actively interested in driving innovation and creativity. Additionally, the online component is expected to attract between 30 and 50 participants from around the world.
One of the event's highlights is a knowledge sharing session featuring the partners MateraHUB, Syn+Ergasia, and DFT. These partners will share their invaluable experiences in nurturing creative practices that address critical issues like audience development and (organizational) sustainability. This knowledge exchange aims to inspire attendees and generate innovative ideas for driving positive change in the CCI sector.
To ensure broad participation and raise awareness, the event partners have established strong collaborations with prominent SEE creative hubs and CCIs networks. Furthermore, the event has gained support from key organizations including the Association Independent Culture Scene Of Serbia, Toplocentrala center for arts inSofia, the region of West Attica in Greece, the municipalities of Plovdiv in Bulgaria, Billund in Denmark and Matera in Italy. The involvement of these esteemed organizations amplifies the event's significance and emphasizes its potential to foster cross-border cooperation.
The Transnational Launch Event guarantees an engaging and enriching experience for participants, equipping them with invaluable tools, insights, and networks to thrive in the CCI ecosystem. Join us on September 1st to seize this extraordinary opportunity and become an integral part of shaping the future of the creative and cultural industries in South East Europe.
