Cultural Creative Spaces & Cities > Travel Support for Policy Co-Creative Events (Italy / The Netherlands / Belgium)

The Cultural and Creative Spaces and Cities (CCSC) project offers travel support for 9 cultural policy makers, public administration representatives, researchers and cultural and creative practitioners to participate in three Policy Co-Creative events. The events are taking place in Naples (Italy), Amsterdam (The Netherlands), and Ghent (Belgium).

Join this EU funded project and the debate about participatory governance, urban commons and bottom-up decision-making processes.

Policy Co-Creative events are organised by three CCSC partners: European Cultural Foundation, Timelab, and University of Antwerp. These events will bring together local decision-makers, cultural and creative practitioners and academic researchers in exploring local issues such as social inclusion, models for delivering public services and urban regeneration, as well as in testing new forms of collaborative work.

All of the Policy Co-Creative events will be closely related to the themes defined in the CCSC Charter of Principles. The participants will discuss urban commons, local democracy, the role of culture in solving urban issues, participatory decision-making processes, bottom-up initiatives, etc.

The events will also include practical workshops, where the participants will work towards policy practices, guidelines and recommendations for the final policy analysis of the CCSC project.

To be able to participate in this call, you must:

  • Be a cultural policy maker, a public administration representative, a researcher or a cultural and creative practitioner.

  • Reside in a European country (in a geographical sense).

  • Have managed or directly participated in projects related to the themes addressed by CCSC, such as citizen participation, urban commons, urban innovation, bottom-up processes, etc.

Trans Europe Halles will support the participation of a total of 9 policy makers, public administration representatives, researchers and cultural and creative practitioners in the CCSC Policy Co-Creative events — three per event — by reimbursing their travel and accommodation expenses (max. €500 in total).
