Duration time: 31.12.2021-30.06.2023

In this project, we will involve 98 people in the process of actively shaping the programme offer of 12 public cultural institutions. We want to achieve this by creating 12 teams consisting of employees of cultural institutions and involving them in the process of public consultations with residents in accordance with the idea of co-creation. During this process, we will invite the recipients of cultural activities (local residents) to share their opinions on the activities of specific cultural institutions. The result of the project will be a better cultural offer and a greater sense of agency of those directly involved in this process. We will train people engaged in the project in inclusive public consultation techniques and methods of researching the experience of the audience. In addition, as part of the project we want to promote a co-creative approach to consulting the programmes of public cultural institutions. We will develop a manual on how to conduct co-creation processes in the public sector and a policy brief for decision makers implementing cultural policies. We will conduct additional educational workshops for 45 people. We will carry out a study to diagnose the practices of cultural institutions in terms of involving the audience in designing their cultural offerings. We will also carry out an information campaign promoting the project, the materials developed as part of the project and the idea of co-creation in public consultations.
