The historic Croatian coastal city of Rijeka will be the headquarters of our second summer school.  The second ADESTE+ Summer School “Engaged Audiences: Strategies for Cultural Change” will take place from 21st to 25th September 2020 in Rijeka.

In 2020 Rijeka is the European Capital of Culture and it will become the centre of significant and extensive events of culture and the Arts. The Summer School and Conference in Rijeka will address the difficulties we face as cultural managers, when it comes to changing cultural institutions and practices. At the moment confirmed speakers include: Nico Carpentier, Teodor Celakoski, Maria Chiara Ciaccheri, Mafalda Damaso, Melissa Dibble, Richard Evans, Lise Korsgaard, Andreja Kulunčić, Davor Mišković, Raul Ramos, Goran Tomka, Daniel Wetzel and Ana Žuvela.

The cultural programme in 2020 introduces Rijeka and its distinctive features to Europe, while at the same time placing current European cultural and social issues at the forefront.  Under the slogan “Port of Diversity”, the Rijeka 2020 programme will focus on three core themes: water, work and migration.

These themes appear in the programme in a variety of ways – exhibits, shows, operas, conferences, concerts, festivals, visits by international and Croatian artists, projects undertaken by local associations, the renovation of spaces and the installation of sculptures, book promotions and meet-and-greets with the citizens of Rijeka, the region, Croatia and Europe. More than 250 programmes featuring over 600 individual events will take place in 2020. Over 250 partner organisations have been involved in the organisation of the programme, with partners and artists arriving from 40 European countries and the rest of the world. More information here.

Now it is a given that Rijeka will be one of the most interesting cities in Europe during 2020 and Adeste+ will be there talking about audience development.
