Apply now! Deadline: July 20

The ADESTE+ Lisbon Summer School is addressed to culture professionals, organizations, institutions and policy makers, gathering and working together on audience development: 5 days of workshops, laboratories, debates and encounters with keynote speakers, experts and practitioners coming from across Europe. A unique chance for acquiring knowledge and information, exchanging expertise and experiences and getting inspiration in a nurturing and professional environment.

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.

ADESTE+ Lisbon Summer School is the first one of a series of 3 that will be developed in 2019 // 2020 // 2021, in the framework of the ADESTE+ project.
