The online discussion “Joint Effort. Engagement of local communities in development of culture centers” will take place on 6 August at 11:00 Moscow time as part of the “Culture Centers-XXI: culture, education, development” program.
Willing to give help? Ask people what they need.
Participation of the local residents in the work of the culture centers, apart from the possibility to respond to the new requests promptly, allows launching new projects and programs, as well as to build, within the culture center’s environment, a full-fledged, committed, robust and creative community.
Another event held within the CC-XXI program is dedicated to the theoretical and practical issues of how to engage the local communities in development of the culture centers. Issues to be discussed:
Methods of applied urban studies and participatory practices, helping to identify the population’s awareness problems concerning the existing recreation centers, and the demand for new formats and services
Challenges, problems and ways of working with the local community
Goals and ways to build communities within the cultural institution environments
The potential of CC as the key points in formation of the local urban identity
Experience in creation of socially responsible projects, including the international practices
Online discussion participants:
Maria Sedletskaya, Head of the analytical group CENTRE Lab
