The third Summer School of the Adeste + project, which ended its registration period yesterday, has received 189 applications from 30 different countries. Most of the requests come from European countries (Italy, Croatia, Spain, Portugal, Greece or Denmark), but there are also applications from Colombia, Argentina, Peru, Russia or New Zealand.
The deadline for submitting applications ended yesterday, September 1st. All the professionals applying to the Summer School will get formal feedback by September 7th. Participants admitted to the Summer School will also receive the list of the case studies involved and their challenge, in order to rank their preferences and help us create the working groups. Every participant will receive a final confirmation of the case study and team he/she will be assigned to before the start of the Summer School together with other detailed information and access to the online Summer School platform.
Participants to the Summer School will be selected balancing different criteria, such as the cultural sector and country you’re working in, gender balance, and previous experience both in arts and culture and in working the audiences.
Our last Summer School should have taken place in Turin, Italy, but considering the ongoing COVID emergency we opted for an online edition in September and October, so as to facilitate a larger and more diverse participation across Europe.
The Summer School will be an online learning experience for cultural professionals willing to discover new methodologies and tools to support them through their job. It will be an international networking opportunity, a safe space in which to explore new ideas, but also a practical training opportunity to foster professional development.
