Participant section

“This week has been one of the best things I’ve ever done professionally. I’ve met so many great people, reconnected with old friends and made new ones, have heard about loads of great practice, and got ideas of things I want to try back at work.

At the same time, there has been a huge amount to digest, and the amount of food for thought has been equivalent to a week of state banquets.

Today has been one of the more academic days and a lot of listening, so just thought I’d share some interesting quotes, statements and . I’d love to hear out here people’s thoughts on these”.

Over 300 participants at the first Lisbon Summer School ADESTE+

Culture audiences were at the core of discussions across an extensive programme of workshops, visits, debates, masterclasses, laboratories and case studies for a whole week. From 23 to 27 September, hundreds of culture professionals, representatives from organisations and public policy making entities across Europe were at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation to discuss audiences at the first-ever Lisbon Summer School ADESTE+.

In workgroups and at lectures during the international conference – “Empowering Audiences, Reimagining Culture” – throughout the whole week, the recent challenges and perspectives on contemporary cultural participation were discussed within the framework of understanding how the paradigm for participation is changing culture.

The working groups that brought together professionals from 19 different nationalities pointed out the five major questions for the future that are to be raised at the next Summer School in Rijeka, Croatia.

This was the first of three Summer Schools ongoing until 2021, under the auspices of the ADESTE+ project of which the Gulbenkian Foundation is a participating member.

Focus and methodology

The ADESTE+ Lisbon Summer School fosters a hands-on approach, which introduces participants to the overall conceptual and theoretical framework of audience development and invites them to engage proactively with participating organizations, practitioners and experts.

Participants will be able to create their own knowledge and participation path, choosing activities and themes and participating different laboratories, debates, conferences according to their interests and needs.

For the 2019 edition, the following main themes have been identified:

What will happen?
We’ll be exploring through study visits and workshops how to look into the audience challenge – 7 case studies for 7 stories.

  • 24th SeptemberDay 2“Audience development as an everyday practice: tools for breaking the walls”

What will happen?
We’ll be inspired by a lecture on how participation can affect policies and artistic practices, and you could choose among 4 master classes on audience analysis, design thinking, use of digital, impact evaluation.

  • 27th SeptemberDay 5“Adeste+ is about questions”

What will happen?

You’ll gain:
Tiredness:  5 days are a long time. Ownership: Adeste+ summer school will be now yours. Self awareness, because you’ll be more knowledgeable. Sadness, because it’s ended. Hope, because you’ll have being inspired by others’ work and achievements.

Registration modes

The Lisbon Summer School consists of 5 full days (full work week, 23-27 September), 2 of which constitute the Adeste+ European Conference (Wednesday and Thursday, 25-26 September).

The “Summer School only” days will dive deeper into theory, practice and work-based reflection, while the 2 days open to the wider public will be an international conference presenting the most actual and challenging perspectives on cultural participation.

Please note you can choose among two options to take part in the event:

1) Full Summer School – 5 days (from 23 to 27) – certificate of attendance provided. Please note that the full summer school has limited number, so you should apply here

2) Only public sessions – 2 days (25 and 26). The participation to the public session is open, so you’ll just need to register here.

 

Participants

The Summer School targets national and international practitioners and policy makers active in the arts and culture field at the local, national and international levels.

Participants should be strongly committed to the development of a social understanding of the arts and in the promotion of cultural participation. They can be freelancers or currently work in public institutions, private companies or non-profit organisations.

The organisers will make the selection based on the following criteria:

  • Experience (the value you can bring to other participants);
  • Motivation (the key to any challenge);
  • Provenience (to enrich the discussion with diverse European voices).
