The ‘Capacity Building for European Capitals of Culture’ project will participate in the European Capitals of Culture (ECoC) Family Meeting in Kaunas on 24 September 2021. Kornelia Kiss, Head of Operations at Culture Action Europe (CAE), will present the progress made since the beginning of the project and the ongoing activities.

The open call for experts to support the European Capitals of Culture is open until February 2022. A pool of experts has been set up and made available to the ECoC delivery teams to draw from when seeking specific expertise, skills and competencies. The third evaluation round will take place in October 2021. For more information on the call for experts and the different profiles needed, click here.

The final session programme of the second Academy Camp on Digital Approaches in ECoCs will be presented by Anne Kurzweg and Pascal Anselmi, leading experts delivering the Academy Camp. We invite the ECoC delivery teams to participate in these online sessions, which will take place on 4 and 5 October 2021, and explore the opportunities in digital and hybrid programming, digital programme management and how to build digital communities. Krisztina Forró will present the third Academy Camp on International dimension of the ECoCs, which will take place at the end of November 2021 in cooperation with Veszprém 2023.

The ECoC Family Meetings are informal meetings attended by representatives of past, current and designated European Capitals of Culture (ECoCs) to address and share issues relevant to their respective activities. The ECoC Family Meetings enable the strengthening of the network and are an opportunity to share ideas and projects to promote dialogue and cooperation between ECoCs.
